Labor unions represent the vanguard of the class struggle. As such, unions are the best and most powerful mass organizations of working class people capable of fighting against the tyrannical capitalist ruling class. By organizing labor power and influencing working conditions on the job site, unions counter market forces and undermine the bourgeois property relations that are the very core of capitalist power – at the means of production, transportation, and commodity circulation.
It is for these reasons that a Labor Standing Committee (LSC) is paramount in the struggle against capitalist exploitation, war, and prejudice. Our vision is to have a world based in solidarity, harmony, and working class diversity.
Our task is to undertake an anti-capitalist message that would build solidarity in our ranks and revitalize the labor movement.
Our plan is threefold:
Educate the working class in the concepts of class struggle by creating educational material and hosting educational events to advance labor consciousness and union activities.
Establish an agenda to incorporate trade unionist activities into the day-to day lives of members by discussing critical events in the world of organized labor, facilitating a solidarity network to provide support to the labor movement, and participating in the organization of recognition campaigns when needed
Organize leadership within the labor movement that will discuss strategy and tactics and expand labor power as well as provide a forum to bring socialists and unionists together to network activities and advance the interests of the working class.
With our vision and by following this process we will revitalize the labor movement and challenge the ruling class on all fronts. A better world is possible.
