Support for Lindsey Workers grows

REPORTS are coming in to the Grimsby Telegraph this afternoon that contract workers at sites in and around the Humber were planning walk outs in support of their colleagues contracted at Lindsey Oil Refinery.

ConocoPhilips confirmed 80 workers at Fabricom who walked off the LOR site today would be joined by their colleagues who are currently working at the neighbouring ConnocoPhilips site tomorrow.

Reports are also coming in of contract workers planning to walk off site at PSN on the North Bank, though this has not been officially confirmed by either company.

As reported on workers at the Total Lindsey Refinery have gone on strike in protest to the influx of foreign workers.

It is estimated that as many as 600 contract workers have staged a walk out and will form a picket line at the refinery in Immingham tomorrow morning at 6:30am.

As reported, bosses at the refinery have confirmed the workers, believed to be from Italy, will be accommodated in off-shore barges in Grimsby docks


It seems that a day of action is needed to support these workers. Let us hope that local British National Party activists are there with membership forms and that representatives from the trade union Solidarity also be there recruiting.

Also well worth a visit is the The Editor of the British National Party's newspaper Freedom, site - Martin Wingfield. He also covers this story but as some interesting information concerning Searchlight. The guys blog is almost as good as his Newspaper, Freedom

Harriet Harman was right - hideously white working-class males are revolting.

As of 08.15 30-JAN-09 No mention of this industrial action on the websites of Unite, Socialist Worker or the Socialist Party. There is one mention in the comments section of Lancaster UAF that calls on the TUC to get the strikers back under control.

The leftards must be sick as parrots that there's been a spontanous workers' uprising and they aren't leading it. I bet Che Guevara is spinning in his grave.

I support British jobs for British workers. Labour government out now. I never voted for Gordon Brown to be PM neither did any other British person.
