Sacked union convenor re-instated at Linamar Swansea
Rob Williams, the union convenor sacked at the Linamar plant in Swansea, has been reinstated just hours before plant workers were due to go on strike.
Workers at the Linamar (formerly Visteon) plant were due to begin strike action at 6am this morning. Workers had overwhelmingly voted in support of an indefinite ‘all-out’ strike, with the chief demand being the reinstatment of their fellow worker and union convenor. The vote had an 88% turn-out.
According to the Socialist Party, of whom Williams is a member, he has been unconditionally reinstated as convenor at the Linamar Swansea plant, effective today.
