Abstract

The class struggle is an inescapable fact of capitalist society. It is fought on every front—economic, political, and ideological. At an early stage, workers discovered that they had to combine in trade unions in order to protect their most elementary rights. The attempt to introduce company unions was recognized as a trap and rejected. It was clear that a union, if it was to serve its purpose, had to be controlled by the workers and oriented to working-class needs and interests.
