Brazilian trade union to Vestas workers: ‘Together with European workers in the fight against unemployment. Only the fight can change our life’

SOLIDARITY TO THE WORKERS OF “VESTAS” WIGHT ISLE / ENGLAND

Dear comrades,

We feel very proud to send to you this letter to pay our solidarity to your fight and a sit-in protest to save your jobs, and against the closure of the factory.

My name is Herbert Claros, I am vice-president of Metal Workers Trade Union of Sao José dos Campos, in Sao Paulo State. I am writing to you in name of all Union members. I am worker of EMBRAER – Brazilian Aviation Company. EMBRAER was a government company and was privatized in 1994. Since then, the majority of its shares of stock have been negotiated in New York Stock Exchange and EMBRAER is no more a Brazilian company. Last February, the company axed 4.270 workers, arguing it was because of world economic crisis. It is no true, the company still making a lot of profit and the workers that remains working are been more exploited, all to the shareholders increase their profits. We have launched a campaign for EMBRAER nationalization and to State be in the company control again.

Our struggle is the same and we are with you in your struggle to the nationalization of the factory and against its closure!!! Your occupation is important to all workers in the world, showing the way to fight. Workers did not make the economic crisis and we are not pay for it!!!!

Your fight is important to maintain the jobs in the Wight Isle and also very important to fight for a clean energy in defense of our planet and for a better quality of life.

We will be together with European workers in the fight against unemployment. Only the fight can change our life!!!!
