This is a website/blog/magazine for active members of SIPTU, Ireland’s largest trade union.  It seeks to  promote a fighting, democratic and independent Union.

It is edited by Des Derwin, a lay activist in the Union since 1972 .

We take a critical and oppositional stance as supporters and activists of our Union. Though people in leadership positions may naturally be referred to directly, personal attacks and abuse will be avoided in reports and comments. Difference will be expressed with mutual respect.  We will seek to conduct the site like we would a trade union meeting.  SIPTU Activist will presume the sincerity and good faith of all whatever criticisms are made of policies, decisions and actions.
