Members of the Mexican electrical workers union have been engaged in a heroic struggle that began more than two years ago -- and today they need our help.

Despite being evicted from their workplaces by police and military in 2009, they continued their resistance and today are negotiating with the government on a just solution.

But they need our help -- the support of trade union members from around the world.  

Sending your message to the Mexican government and the union will take you less than a minute -- please do so now - click here.

 Please spread the word inside your union, to your workmates, friends and family -- and share the campaign via these social media sites:

 

Meanwhile, thanks to the more than 7,600 of you who responded to last week's appeal in support of jailed trade union leaders in Greece.  The trial began on Tuesday and the union leaders
have thanked all of you for your support.  But we need more messages before it resumes next week, so if you've not yet sent off a message, please do so now - click here.   

Finally, it's a new year and we're relaunching our partnership with UCS - the unionised bookshop - to promote books by and for trade unionists. This month, I'd like to urge all of you to have a look at Mother Jones: The Most Dangerous Woman in America. If you've never heard of Mother Jones, you're in for a real treat. And remember that every book you purchase using this link helps to support LabourStart.  

Have a great weekend.
