The fight to save jobs at the rail manufacturing firm Bombardier in Derby is continuing.

The government’s decision not to give the firm a contract to build Thameslink carriages risks thousands of jobs.

Former Unite union general secretary Tony Woodley was to address Bombardier workers as Socialist Worker went to press.

Some activists believe the unions are planning a protest at parliament in September, to follow up last month’s 10,000‑strong march in Derby.

This would be welcome, and workers must also take action to save their jobs.

Derby could face another threat if a Rolls-Royce high‑tech engine facility does not go to the city’s plant.
