On this page we highlight strikes and how you can support them.
Workplaces are sites of struggle which often have great potential power. But to turn that potential into reality workers need to be aware of it, have the political will to use it, have the organisation to wield it and have a plan of action they believe can win.
The next section highlights some key parts of rs21’s approach: the importance of doing collections, how to visit a picket line and why delegation work matters. All this is based on organising rank and file workers rather than starting with the formal structures of unions.
We also include recent strike reports and details of where to find more info.
"If you want to organise at work, buy this book"
We need radical social and political change. Where should we begin? For longtime workplace activist Ian Allinson, the answer is clear: organising at work is essential to rebuild working-class power. Workers Can Win is an essential, practical guide for rank-and-file workers and union activists. Drawing on more than 20 years of organising experience, Allinson combines practical techniques with an analysis of the theory and politics of organising and unions.
