Grocon: will it be pigs and wigs or workers and hard hats who win?

If Grocon wins it will be a setback for all workers. That’s why it is important for building workers to fight back in the way that has the greatest chance of success – striking and shutting down the building industry and cutting off the flow of massive profits to bludgers like Grollo and his ilk, and in doing that calling on other workers to join them to bury Labor’s anti-worker Fair Work Act.

Safety on building sites

A letter of mine in today’s Australian Financial Review in defence of the CFMEU building union and safety on site. http://www.afr.com/p/opinion/safety_the_top_priority_for_unions_Yk2q2HAF0tkhZYO1J7nH7L

The blood on Labor’s hands

Capitalism is a system built on the blood of its soldiers, indigenous people, refugees and workers. Only overthrowing this system of death can bring peace and safety to the world.

They die for profit

One task for the Australian left is to link the fight for lives and against the bosses’ killing machine on building sites to the fight in Australia against the Australian ruling class’s killing machine in Afghanistan. That ruling class killing machine is in Afghanistan repressing Afghans to protect the system that produces Grocon’s safety practices and profits.

Thiess turds

Ban all Thiess and Leighton work. Bring the bastards to their knees. And send a message to all the building bosses that enough is enough. Let the fightback begin today – against Thiess, against the Australian Building and Construction Commission, for safety on site, for big pay increases.

Defend Ark Tribe: defend the right to strike

Is the rank and file prepared to push the struggle for the right to strike all the way, and bring in members of other unions on and off building sites across Australia?

Is Ark Tribe Labor’s next political prisoner?

Industrial action across Australia can smash Labor’s ABCC and save Ark Tribe from jail. Now is the time to begin organising for this.

Sick the ABCC onto BHP and Rio Tinto

It’s time for Julia Gillard to order the ABCC to investigate if Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton have been bribing foreign officials and committing a crime in Australia.

Trade union treachery

Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make union officials.  The latest in this descent into madness is the cancellation of  a union demonstration against the Labor Government’s Australian Building and Construction Commission which was planned for the Labor Party National Conference opening in Sydney on 30 July. The ABCC has draconian powers to […]

The Construction Union – stirrings against Labor?

The ABCC is Labor’s law. Lobbying MPs and passing motions at the ALP national conference won’t change a thing. Cutting off profit to the bosses is the way to force them and the Government to back down.
