    Chinese workers fight back

    China is the workshop of the world, and for years the threat of outsourcing to China has been used to discipline workers in other countries.

    But Chinese workers are fighting back and winning better terms and conditions for themselves. We need to support them to turn the race to the bottom into a climb to the top.

    Ask your MP to sign the EDM on INEOS and Trades Unions

    Petrochemical company INEOS has sacked the Unite convenor Mark Lyon at the Grangemouth site, and is refusing to recognise the elected shop stewards.

    This is in breach of ILO standards and UK labour law, yet the company will receive public money.

    Solidarity with Greece

    “The people of Greece face an unprecedented economic and political crisis”

    USi is particularly concerned with countries within the Eurozone that are facing tremendous economic, political and social instability. One country in particular USi wants to build a genuine and ongoing exchange between trade unions and their members is in Greece.

    All trade union members across the World have been deeply concerned about the events in Greece. In a letter to the Guardian dated 13 February ‘Solidarity Campaign to support the people of Greece‘ signed by trade unions, writers, community and campaign groups, academics and politicians the UK labour movement made its intentions clear to provide support.

    As such, USi’s flag-ship campaign will be a solidarity campaign with the people of Greece. This will involve raising funds that the USi Advisory Board will determine the allocation of any monies raised in consultation with Greek trade unions so it can be put to the best possible usage.

    We want you to TAKE ACTION:

    1. Show your solidarity with the people of Greece by signing up and sharing this campaign and latest articles

    2. Engage with Greek trade unionists through USi forums and web conferences

    3. Build practical solidarity between your union and community and sister organisations in Greece

    4. Donate to USi’s Greek solidarity campaign. All funds raised go directly to support Greek trade unionists in their battle against austerity
