Class Power on Zero Hours by AngryWorkers

AngryWorkers, a small political collective, has spent six years organising in London’s industrial backyard, mainly in the food manufacturing and logistics sector. This book is about their experience of building worker's power on the ground and what strategies are most effective.

“We wanted to pay more than just lip service to the classic slogan, ‘the emancipation of the working classes must be conquered by the working classes themselves.’ We worked in a dozen different warehouses and factories. We organised slowdowns on shop floors, rocked up on bosses’ and landlords’ doors with our solidarity network, and banged our heads against brick walls as shop stewards in the bigger unions. We wrote up all our experiences in our newspaper, WorkersWildWest, which we gave out to 2,000 local workers at warehouse gates at dawn. We tried to rebuild class power and create a small cell of a revolutionary organisation. 

This book documents our experiences. It is material for getting rooted. It is a call for an independent working-class organisation.”

This edition includes a new preface written in the light of Covid-19.
