What's New: Feeding Illusions with Labour Market Studies and Trade Deals

by George Hewison | August 30, 2014

In the earliest days of unionizing, dreams of a different kind of society (where labour power was freely exchanged between labouring producers) motivated the earliest union pioneers to seek unionization, not as an end in itself, but as a means to fulfilling their ultimate dream. It was the power of that dream when seized upon by millions of workers that finally forced employers to recognize the need to take the most extreme edges off their own vision of an unfettered capitalist labour market.

What's New: Eastern Ukraine people's republics between militias and oligarchs

by Boris Kagarlitsky | August 30, 2014

The war between the Ukraine government and the republics of Novorossiya is gradually taking on the character of a positional stand-off. The resources of both sides are exhausted, and fighting reserves are at an end. For the people's republics, defending themselves against the many times larger military forces of the Kiev regime, the well-known principle of "a government needs to win, but for an insurrection it is enough not to lose" operates with full force.

Bullet #1028: (part 2) South Africa and the Changing Politics of Labour

by Leonard Gentle | August 29, 2014

NUMSA has always been the left critic within COSATU. Its roots lay in the traditions of independent socialism of FOSATU and MAWU, which precede the formation of COSATU -- a tradition to the left of the SACP and long castigated as 'workerism' by the SACP and the ANC in the 1980s.

What's New: The Popular Front: Rethinking CPUSA History

by Charlie Post | August 28, 2014

The Communist Party of the United States was the largest and most influential radical organization active in the tumultuous labor and social struggles of the 1930s and 1940s. While never a mass party by the standards of the French or Italian CPs, the U.S. CP had a real and significant impact on the mass struggles of industrial workers, the unemployed and African Americans before the anticommunist witch-hunts of the late 1940s and 1950s.

What's New: The Class Politics of Pipeline Resistance

by Umair Muhammad | August 27, 2014

The Jane-Finch community is among the many neighbourhoods in Toronto that Enbridge's Line 9 runs through. Standing at the geographical margins of the city, Jane-Finch is a low-income, racialized community that faces many challenges, including chronic unemployment and underemployment, targeted policing, and substandard housing.

Bullet #1027: South Africa and the Changing Politics of Labour

by Leonard Gentle | August 27, 2014

The two biggest signifiers of the state of the labour movement in South Africa in 2014 are, on the one hand, a terminal crisis within what is still, formally, the biggest trade union centre -- the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU), aligned to the ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC), and, on the other, the emergence of new workplace militancies by workers, notably the national strike wave in the second half of 2013.
