Part Of The Union

Bildergebnis für labour unions

Yesterday my company engaged my to assistance works council election. Not only to assist but further more to be a member of the further work council. I agreed because I have the knowledge about the system and specifications of this job. It took more than four hours until we had the final result and finally they elected me as the first substitute member of work council. I never expected this and therefore it is an honour to represent my associates in the company. Therefore I offer you a very old song by The Strawbs. Almost 40 years ago they released this unusual song for a folk band. This song accompanied me for decades because it was the first song that made me feel like a part of socialism intellectual world.

The Strawbs - Part of the Union
