RMT PRESS RELEASE

RMT calls for full support for Vestas day of action‏

Sent: 11 August 2009

OFFSHORE ENERGY UNION RMT today called for full support for a day of action in support of the Vestas wind turbines factory campaign which will be marked by events up and down the country tomorrow (Wednesday August 12).

RMT, which represents a substantial block of the Vestas workforce, is continuing to support the fight to get the Isle of Wight factory back into production and is sending out a clear signal that the campaign for wind turbine manufacture in England is far from over.

RMT is also backing those workers who have been sacked and victimised at Vestas during the 18 day occupation and is leading a campaign to get them reinstated and to get the threat of black-listing lifted from over their heads.

Bob Crow, RMT general secretary, said today:

“The fight for Vestas and for the future of wind turbine manufacture in England is far from over. We are continuing to back this brave group of workers and the day of action tomorrow gives everyone a chance to send a clear message to the company and to the government that this is an issue that will not go away.”
