Simclar - The Truth

Workers in the Simclar factory in Ayrshire have been kicked out on the streets by the company management. Since then they have briefly occupied the plant and picketed other Simclar plants. Now they have a blog which is asking some pertinent questions.

"On the 29/01/2007 Simclar Ayrshire locked the gates on its 420 strong workforce.A statement from the company put the closure down to competition from the far east and falling orders.Significant efforts were made to make Ayrshire viable,they said.So why are there so many unanswered questions? Why did the company change owners weeks before? Why were our jobs advertised weeks ago at another plant? Where is the money we are due?"
