French lessons – What we can learn from the 1988 hospital workers’ strike coordinations in France

We translated the following two texts from 1988, because we think that there are still things we can learn from the strike movement back then.

How can we overcome divisions into different unions and professional groups and regions (e.g. with the government in Scotland offering a still puny 4% increase)
