Construction workers protest at Staythorpe power station

Power station workers joined hundreds of protesters in an early morning walkout.

Steve Score, East Midlands Socialist Party, reports

Workers marched to Newark jobcentre and entered en-masse to get application forms for work on the Staythorpe power station site, after a picket of the power station. There was anger that the jobs are advertised in the jobcentre, but applications are forwarded on to the contractor who then ignores them.

Keith Gibson, on of the leaders of the Lindsey refinery strike spoke to protesting construction workers outside the job centre.

If the workers at Staythorpe who respected the picket line today are sacked, as is being threatened, it is even more reason for a national strike and demo.
