Straight from Managua NSCAG presents a film about the challenges and triumphs of Nicaragua’s trade unions.
Perfect for branch showings, the film features special thanks to British unions affiliated to NSCAG for helping to fund new organising schools.
The 1979 revolution led to the creation of over 3,000 trade unions, with over 150,000 members. After 1990 right-wing governments imposed massive cuts in the public sector and privatised much of the economy. The trade unions created the FNT to unite the workers and resist the massacre of jobs and livelihoods. They created new types of union, and new training and organising programmes were developed. Today the unions have an alliance with the Sandinista government and they have a say in policy-making. The economy grows and trade unions are on the up once more.
This exciting film includes interviews with leading Nicaraguan trade unionists, and provides an inspiring example to British trade unions facing tough battles against right-wing cuts.
