Support Rob Williams!

rob-wRob Williams, Unite convenor at Linamar (formerly Visteon and before that Ford’s) car components plant in Swansea was sacked last Tuesday 28 April, but subsequently reinstated (ableit on the basis of suspension) after some 100 union members walked off the production lines and prevented his forcible removal from the plant by management and police.

His sacking and current suspension on pay will be discussed again at a meeting between Unite officials and Linamar management in London on Wednesday 6 May.

Rob is a Socialist Party member and vice-chair of the National Shop Stewards Network, who actively supported the Visteon workers’ resistance, visiting all three factories over the course of the past month or so.

Support the lobby of “Unite” headquarters, 128 Theobalds Road, London (nearest tube station: Holborn, WC2) from 9.30AM on Wednesday 6 May or watch this space for further details of local action in South Wales.
