Economic organisation

"(1) On page 6 of the SPGB Manifesto it says "the workers’ organisation, political and economic, must be on the basis of their class." I want to know what the workers’ economic organisation is.

(2) On pages 22-3 you say "Trade Unions being necessary under capitalism, any action on their part on sound lines should be heartily supported." I should like to know what you would call sound lines.

I have numbered the above questions for convenience in answering."

The answer to the first query is that the present economic organisations of the workers is the trade union movement. Mainly containing non-Socialists, its efforts are poor, but when the members recognise the class struggle their activities will bear greater fruit.
