WHEN: 4:30pm, Thursday, 9th July 2009WHERE: South Quay, Port offices
Unite members and workers from the Port of Yarmouth will be joined by dock workers from across the country to protest about the dismissal of the Yarmouth dockers and the casualisation of the dock.
Unite members from Felixstowe, Thamesport, Dover, the Humber and Southampton will be gathering outside the South Quay port offices in Great Yarmouth. They will be addressed by the union’s national secretary, Brendan Gold.
Ahead of the protest, Victor Brazkiewicz, Unite regional industrial organiser, said: “We are delighted with the support we are receiving from colleagues in other ports as well as the support received from the local Yarmouth community.
“At Yarmouth the workforce is committed to continuing the campaign for permanent jobs and they have the total support of the union in their endeavours.”
This protest is another step in Unite’s campaign against casualisation at the port.

Everybody at Felixstowe should take note of this. It is every single docker being hit. We are all the same. It does not matter if you are a Crane Driver or a Floater / Stevedore / RTG / Tug / Engineer / Gash / TCO / FLT / Sheddies & Even staff. We are all Dockers.
So lets stick together for once please.
