Ensus Workers Still Out

Construction workers at the Ensus bioethanol refinery on Teesside are still out on strike today in support of the sacked Lindsey workers, according to the BBC.

Whilst other workers at sites like Sellafield have returned to work, the lads at Wilton remain on strike despite the fact that there is no dispute with Ensus themselves.

National newspapers were full yesterday of poignant images of Ensus workers burning used Gregg's pastie bags in an emotional symbol of solidarity with their Lindsey colleagues.

Around 200 workers are also reported to be still out on strike at the Drax power station, after talks there this morning failed to persuade them to return.
