I received a letter from Lisa Rose from Treforest who represents the Public and Commercial Services Union. This is my response.
As someone who has studied economics at MSc level and has worked in the private sector as a union-affiliated worker for the last 9 years I have come to the conclusion that the private model of organizing the economy does not work. The whole premise of privatisation is that if you put power and wealth into the hands of the few they will be better motivated to ensure their company is efficient, which is better for productivity and economic growth. However, this is a failed model and why I am a co-operator. Employees of organisations will not work harder knowing they are lining the pockets of the few, they will worker harder knowing they will get some benefit from their work, be it capital for themselves and their family, personal development or the fact that they are contributing to a wider purpose, which benefits themselves and others.
