London Education Workers' Group - a brief introduction

A brief working-summary of what the newly formed London Education Workers' Group is.

Submitted by Choccy on October 1, 2009

The London Education Workers Group was established so that education workers throughout London can come together to oppose the coming assault on education. We reject the division of workers into separate unions and recognise that politicians, political parties, and union bureaucrats have nothing to offer us. Instead, direct action must be our weapon. Power comes from the grassroots and we, as education workers, must democratically and collectively controlled our own organizations.

Besides supporting one another, we must extend solidarity to student and community struggles. In the long term, it is only through opposition to both capitalism and the state that we can solve, once all for all, the problems that face us as education workers.
