Talkshop notes on IR

Notes from the Talkshop at the Bookshop Industrial Relations in Australia, Friday 09/12/2005, taken by Sid of the Questions & Discussion part of the night’s event. This is not a transcript, just a brief and rough outline of the discussion, with apologies to all those who took part.

P: About the two day Toronto Strike that was on the poster that advertised the talk, can you tell us something about it. When was it, how big…

J: It was in the late 1990s, about 1996/7. Type Metropolitan Days of Action in Google.

K: Business Council of Australia had a fireworks display and party to celebrate the passing of the new IR laws, I saw the fireworks that night and inquired about what they were about. The IWW is developing a strategy to help workers organise to combat the new laws. We are proposing to allocate Regions in Australia to allow workers to organise and communicate with eachother more easily, and so as not to have the centralised approach of the Business Unions.

Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of the

world organize as a class, take possession of the means of production,
