TULF Campaign Against Privatisation
At a meeting of the Trade Union Left Forum (TULF) in the TEEU offices, Dublin, in January, it was agreed to launch a campaign in defence of public wealth and in opposition to privatisation.
Members and activists from a range of unions, public and private-sector, shared their experiences of the scale of privatisation that is under way and the loss to the public of valuable assets and services.
The TULF pamphlet Privatisation – Robbing The People’s Wealth states: “The trade union movement has to move beyond sectoral interests and lead a public campaign in defence of public wealth and public ownership and to fight privatisation wherever it is proposed. This needs to begin with an ideological defence of public ownership and a heightened sense of pride and value in successful public operations.”
