Solidareco kun la strikantaj kolegoj!

Teksto de Kurt Lhotzky

De pli ol unu monato, la Tyrolit fabriko en San Luis en Argentino estas la scenejo de maldolĉa industria disputo. La aŭstria Tyrolit (posedata de la Swarovski familio de Wattens) rifuzis subskribi kolektivan kontrakton por pliaaltaj salajroj en aprilo en la provinco de San Luis kaj maldungis 15 laboristojn.

WFTU Takes Part in Russian Communist Party (not Union) Celebration

Peter sez:

The WFTU here records its participation in a Moscow event marking Soviet victory in World War 2. I thought that the CPRF (not spelled out) must be some Russian pro-Communist trade union confederation. Big mistake - by myself...and also, surely, by the WFTU?

Because it turns out that the initials are those of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, which considers itself a successor to the CPSU (which I will now spell out: Communist Party of…

The World Federation of Trade Unions: Proudly Stalinist

Peter sez:

This is the second time in one week that I feel obliged to draw attention here to the identification of the WFTU with Stalinism. My previous posting was on its General Secretary's denial that it was the Soviet Union that massacred Polish officers at Katyn, early in World War 2. This time he is paying the respects of not simply himself, the WFTU leadership or the WFTU membership to Stalin but of the whole 'global working class'. One assumes he didn't consult…
