I am backing Mick Dooley the left candidate for General Secretary of UCATT.
No Ecology without socialism and no socialism without trade union struggles and victories.
Great Mick name checks The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist, on the video (see above) a classic novel also a classic socialist novel about a building worker.
My friend and comrade Jerry Hicks sent me details of how you can donate to Mick's campaign, spread the word.
Ian Bone has a nice analysis of the UCATT election battle here.
The left are divided in Britain but we can unite behind strong socialist candidates in the trade unions.
Educate, agitate, and above all, organise.
UCATT election for General Secretary: Financial appeal.
Balloting begins on 11th November Mick Dooley is the candidate who pledges to take an average wage, he supports taking direct action and believes in grass roots control of unions. We can help him.
