Employers are organised as businesses and public bodies and

(obviously) their organisation is recognised in workplaces.

We need the right for worker's organisation

to be recognised in workplaces too.

A Super-quick Read

    of The Right To Organise–

The job deal you have with employers is unfair.

Businesses are people organized together.

So are Public Services.

Every day, they act collectively, as organizations,

dominating everybody else in society.

They, the rest, most of them workers, should look,

from their personal position, at why they are

entitled to organize and act together too.

Its time we caught up with the

Industrial Revolution:

They are organised, We are entitled to be.


Its the biggest problem in society because without

the mass of people being organized, it leaves work

and business, the most important activities in

society, to be run by business people, who do

organise in their own interests.

People know they’d be stronger in a union.

But that doesn’t make the political case for

their entitlement to be.

It’s not because employers can get someone

from the unemployed.

It’s because they’ve got so many other staff.

This case urgently needs making, with

fellow-workers, with people generally,

and with politicians and the media
