We are setting up a campaign for Vestas workers’ families and Isle of Wight residents to show their support for keeping jobs at Vestas. The families and communities campaign will be very important in keeping spirits up through this stressful time. For more details call 07775 763750.

  1. keep on fighting, the workers united will never be defeated. good luck to you all dave nurton willunga south australia

  2. […] They deserve our support. They have a blog here and a list of planned events here. […]

  3. Well done on taking this step. If you don’t take control of the resources the company will leave without a fight and the government can say it was too late and there was nothing they could do!
    We will do everything we can to promote this in the northeast.

  4. Climate Camp South Coast Neighbourhoods supports the Vestas workers.

    While we are dismayed it could come to this, we are cheered that it’s the workers who are leading this action.

    We need a just transition to renewable energy. And you can’t have a just transition without prioritising the needs of the workers before financial bottom lines.
