Power Workers' Struggle for 35-Hour Week



NSW power workers in their struggle for a shorter working week adopted worker control tactics last June. Their struggle became a foe al point in the general critical political situa tion that has arisen. All political and social groupings are more clearly defining their attitude towards the proposition that the 35 hour week is an entirely realisable social reform NOW As well, the fact that power workers exercised workers’ control over availability of plant and generation of electrical power for four months has raised to new levels understanding by friend and foe alike, of the potentiality of worker-control tactics and rel evance to the movement for revolutionary change.
