Let’s review the next section of “Class Struggle Unionism” by Joe Burns the meaning of “class stand” which see our union as part of a larger struggle between labor and capital. This leads to a more critical analysis of the role of the media, government, the courts, and the main political parties. This leads to an anti-establishment brand of unionism, that approaches questions from the point of class struggle. The billionaire class the so call 1% great fortunes allows to control the wealth of the society, the corporate plutocracy, exercise trusteeship over educational institutions, foundations, think tanks, publications and mass media thereby influencing society’s ideological output and information flow. The bigger problem is that the entire political and economic system is built to provide for the exploitation of workers. Therefore, our class stand doesn’t consider government institutions like the National Labor Relations Board and federal courts to be neutral.
Our unionism must be seen as part of a larger class struggle and the need for a strategic approach, on a national scale, rather than simply a question of organizing workers.
