About 40 people attended a public meeting organised by the Amicus branch of Marshall Aerospace in Cambridge which was addressed by Jerry Hicks.
Jerry spoke with passion and determination about his fight.
He spoke of the great strength in unity when workers came out in support of him following his dismissal by Rolls Royce.
There were trade unionists from many unions present including Paul Turnbull from the post and telecoms CWU union, who Jerry supported during his successful campaign against dismissal last year.
One Marshall’s Amicus member said, “Why we are continuing to support a government which continues to attack working class people is beyond me.
“We need to call them to account.”
People at the meeting were contemptuous of the way New Labour has pursued the Tory anti-union laws.
They were, however, hopeful that the workers can put pressure on for these to be repealed.
Trade unionists from Cambridge are organising transport to attend the national demonstration in support of Jerry in Bristol on 2 September.
