Crunch Time- a film on the Crisis by the EPMU
Socialists say "We WON'T pay for their crisis". We didn't cause it, and where workers are threatened with redundancies, we point to the examples of factory occupations in Chicago, Waterford and Buenos Aires as an alternative to capitalist greed and mass unemployment.
The new film from the EPMU differs in tone. Whilst it puts forward some valuable economic information and gives rank and file workers a voice to raise their fears, it also sees the Union's role as softening the effects of the Depression in partnership with employers, rather than fighting them militantly for every job. SA presents the film and welcomes readers to post their take on the EPMU's line.
Crunch Time. For workers, for bosses and for union bureaucrats.
THE ALTERNATIVE TO REDUNDANCIES- FACTORY OCCUPATIONS IN "THE TAKE".
