Join The Get Up Stand Up Bloc At The Trades March And Help Organise The Unorganised

From fast food outlets, to assembly lines, from corner shops to hyper markets there is one common relationship. That is the relationship between boss and worker. Those of us that have to sell our time as workers enabling us to pay rent, buy food and engage in leisure activities have nothing in common with those who buy our time. Those of us that sell our time are the employee class. Those that buy our labour are the employing class. These two classes have nothing in common.
Yet ideologues on all sides of the spectrum tell us that class is no longer an issue, history is closed and with it all debates on how society should be run. On one hand we are told we no longer need trade unions and workers’ organizations. Now the unions sit around the table of social partnership as if the bosses, state and workers shared a common interest. The class war is over they say.
