The Grangemouth plant is only a brief westerly journey by car up the road from the battlefield at Dunbar. Not since Old Nol and his republican army utterly crushed Leslie's Covenanters at Dunbar in 1650 has there been such a rout in bonnie Scotland. The UNITE bureaucracy totally caved in and conceded everything to capital.

'Tactical retreat' or the tendency and future of trade unionism in the epoch of capital's deepening structural crisis?

Where is trade unionism going?
