Transcript . meetings. The nucleus should endeavor to have its own members elected as youth delegates to the trade unions and must carry on a propaganda amongst the workers to ensure that the shop is 100 per cent organized. THE CONVOCATION OF SHOP MEETINGS The convocation of shop meetings must result from the particular workshop needs. Nevertheless the nucleus should endeavor to organize such meetings regularly so that the workers may become used to them as a permanent feature and in matters arising for solution may themselves call for them without the pressure of the nucleus. It depends upon the particular conditions prevailing, whether these meetings are called by the shop committee, the trade unions or the nucleus. In any matter of urgency the nucleus must move without waiting for the other bodies. In any case, the nucleus must make a thoro preparation for any such meetings, as if it has previously decided on its course of action it may with organization carry its point in the face of a numerically stronger but unorganized opposition. LEGALITY AND ILLEGALITY In general the form of the nucleus work is determined by the position of the League as a whole. If the League works legally then the nucleus must work in the shop known to all under its proper name. As far as. possible this must be done even in dangerous situations. The effect of coercive measures, the persecution, arrest etc. of prominent comrades must result in workshop demonstrations against the master class, organized by the nuclei. If the bosses conduct a systematic campaign of victimization against the members of the nuclei, by spies stoolpigeons, etc. then each nucleus must take protective measures accordingly. It must secure the safety of its shop meetings, it must strictly control the admission of new members and so on. Should the pressure from above become too strong then it will have no recourse but to go underground and attempt to conduct its work thru the trade union fractions and by any other means that may remain open to it. If the entire League should be forced underground then each nucleus must adopt the methods most suited to its own conditions of work in the shop and whatever methods of contact which may be established by the national organization. 47
