On this page you will find our initial response to a reported sexual assault and updates on the process we have put in place to investigate our actions on this matter.

Initial response from Workers' Liberty

An ex-member of the AWL has posted an online anonymous report alleging sexual assault on him by another ex-member of the AWL in 2005. We take these issues very seriously. We conducted an immediate review of these events so we could give a prompt response, as part of holding ourselves accountable.

Workers' Liberty statement on the split in Unison United Left AWL Fri, 10/25/2013 - 13:27

Unison United Left, a left-wing grouping in the public sector union Unison, has recently split, with some of its leading figures planning to form a new organisation. A statement announcing the split is online here.

AWL supports this move, but believes more clarity is needed about the reasons for the split and the basis of the new organisation. In a spirit of comradeship and support, we have written the following statement.

Next year restrictions on migration from European Union member states Bulgaria and Romania are set to be lifted.

There is growing right-wing agitation for Bulgarian and Romanian workers to be excluded from Britain, treated as second class citizens without the right to remain, or denied access to services and benefits.

Statement from Workers' Liberty teachers on the NUT deputy general secretary election

It would be better if the individuals and groups who define themselves as left in the Union could agree to support common candidates in national elections. It will be important in the period ahead to consolidate the small majority the left has gained on the national executive and avoid the prospect of Broadly Speaking regaining either the Executive or the GS or DGS positions. Just as important is the need to build a clearer, sharper, more determined left which acts collectively on the key issues facing members, particularly those which require us to mobilise members for action.
