Trade unions

Workers' self-defence starts with getting unionised at work. This section includes material on the trade union struggles and issues I am involved in and/or urge you to support!

Bodily Fluids Interception Team

As London Underground launches all-night running on two lines at weekends, a special squad of cleaners has a special task ...

​The Tube's come up with a spiffing scheme
The train stays in service and the bosses beam
But it's not as fun as it might seem
For the Bodily Fluids Interception Team

The Eleventh Commandment

I'd rather go to prison or be given a huge fine
Or have cosmetic surgery from Doctor Frankenstein
Sit through a boring lecture on interior design
Yes, I’d rather do most anything than cross a picket line

If You Can't Beat 'Em, Cheat 'Em

We're trying a coup but our tactics were busted
​The more we manoevre, the more they're disgusted
The rules can be broken and figures adjusted
The members?! There's no way those oiks can be trusted.

We need a new leader, more Theresa than May
But the bloody trade unions won't do what we say
We can't have a vote cos they'll vote the wrong way
So we'll write for The Sun and we'll go and make hay
