Over 2022-3, Britain has seen the biggest wave of

strikes in a generation. Workers are fighting back.

This short book provides an initial balance sheet of the

experiences of these strikes.

The rediscovery by significant numbers of workers of

their ability to take collective action is something to

be celebrated.

But too often union leaders have put forward only a

limited strike strategy – and been willing to accept

deals far short of what is needed or that could be


The book examines the nature of the trade union

bureaucracy and looks at some of the grassroots

challenges to it in the past.

It also asks what we can learn from the strikes over

pensions in France, why Labour doesn’t support the strikes, and what role socialist politics has in the workplace.

It argues for a sharp challenge to the union bureaucracy and lays out a strategy for the way forward.
