FROM RMT PRESS OFFICE
BILLY BRAGG TO PROMOTE VESTAS OCCUPATION IN THE USA
Musician and political campaigner Billy Bragg will be taking the news of the Vestas occupation on the Isle of Wight over the ocean on a short US tour starting this weekend at the request of the Vestas workers’ union RMT.
The Vestas occupation has been big news in the USA as the company manufactures turbines for the American market. The turbines made on the Isle of Wight had been destined for the States.
“I give my full support to the Vestas workers and the occupation. They are a fantastic example to us all and they deserve to win this important battle for green jobs. I will be promoting their campaign from the stage on my American dates and will do all I can to generate support and solidarity for their fight.”
