British, US trade unions to merge


This is fascinating news. Why has it taken so long? Now if only the transport unions would combine.

Just imagine the repercussions leverage if truckers internationally went on strike simultaneously. They would have the power to bring the world to its knees. That should give the multi-nationals something to really worry about.
Britain's biggest trade union is set to announce a merger with a US counterpart to eventually create the first global labour organisation, a press report said Sunday.

The planned tie-up between Britain's Unite and United Steelworkers (USW) in the United States is designed to better protect workers against the effects of globalisation, the Sunday Telegraph said.
