British union inspired by student protests

The new general secretary of British union Unite, Len McCluskey, has said that his union is ‘preparing for battle’. In January, union leaders will discuss a ‘broad strike movement’ against the government’s spending cuts. He praised the massive student protests against tuition fees and said students now meet with the same hostility as union activists on picket lines in the 1970s and 1980s.
