The political witch-hunt taking place at Sunnydale College, Co. Durham, where popular local teacher Mark Walker has been suspended and questioned on his political affiliations, is more than a local 'quirk'.

As a Trades Union Solidarity takes the 'libertarian' view that its members and indeed all worker's political affiliations, are of no concern to us and nor should it be of interest to bosses. In the recent Queen's Speech, however, the Government has said its new Employment Bill would amend trade union membership laws so that unions will be able to "expel members on the basis of their membership of a political party" thus endorsing the introduction of political bias into the workplace.

Now, It is clear that Mark Walker is being discriminated against because of his membership of a political party. Local Labour bosses are of course happy to see their schools become political battlegrounds but if the above new law comes on the Statute Books we can expect to see more of the same. That is why the fund to provide Mark with legal guidance and representation is so important. One day, if your face doesn't fit and the local 'establishment' comes for you, what we do now may make the difference! Mark Walker deserves your support.
