Reinstate Rob Williams - the fight is on!

I've just heard the wonderful news that UNITE members at Linamar (formerly Ford, then Visteon) in Swansea have voted by 88% for strike action to oppose the sacking of their convenor, Rob Williams. This vote comes despite a concerted campaign of threats and "promises" from management.

Now the members have shown their determination not to sell their terms and conditions or to allow their union organisation to be beheaded, it is up to all of us in the trade union movement to match their courage with our support and solidarity.

I previously posted the details of where to send messages and donations. Please make them pour in.
