Tony Woodley, the Unite general secretary, today gave seven days notice to the Linamar management of strike action from 6 am Thursday 11 June.

The notice was given at a conference meeting with Wade, the head of Linamar UK.

Woodley made it clear to the management that Unite would be prepared to fully back and support a lengthy strike, no matter how long it took, until Rob Williams, the elected Unite convenor and a long-standing Socialist Party member, was reinstated.

Woodley was responding to Wade, who had remarked that the management of Linamar would accept the union in the plant but not with Rob Williams as the convenor.

In reality, Wade wants a union that would be compliant. He was clearly shaken when he was told this was unacceptable.

The shop stewards of Linamar are meeting later to discuss plans to step up the campaign to get rob his job back.

Please continue to send in massages of support and donations to the campaign.
