LabourStart's First UK Campaign, Ever

Help NUMAST get Union Recognition for Merchant Navy Officers

Even though LabourStart has been based in London since 1998, no British union has asked for our help on a global campaign. Until now.

This week, the Merchant Navy officers union NUMAST has asked for our help in publicizing the anti-union practices of Hoverspeed, a cross-channel ferry company owned by a US-based multinational company.

It's important to turn this into one of our most successful campaigns not only to convince the company (Hoverspeed) to recognize unions, but also to convince British unions to recognize the importance of the Internet as a tool for global campaigning.

Please take a moment and send off your message to Hoverspeed:
