Socialists support the striking rail workers and any others who enter the fray.

EU strikes on 14 November

8th November 2012 Socialist Action 0

By Nicky Dempsey

Unions in a number of European countries have called a mass one-day strike for November 14. It is the first time since the crisis began that co-ordinated industrial action has been organised in a number of different countries. It represents an important step forward in the growing collaboration between the workers’ organisations in a number of countries and poses the question of a European-wide action programme to deal with the crisis.
