Marching through Grimsby

Around 150 dock workers, their families and supporters marched through Grimsby last week in protest against threats of compulsory redundancies and attacks on terms and conditions by the Associated British Ports (ABP).

The march was followed by a rally at which Brendan Gould, the Unite union national secretary, said the union will not allow ABP to use the recession to attack workers.

Davy Hall, Unite regional secretary, said that the mood to fight is growing and he has seen a sharp increase in industrial action ballots.

All speakers stressed the need for a national campaign to fight these attacks.
