Film director Ken Loach supports sacked Belfast Airport workers

Ken Loach, director of films ’like Land and Freedom’ and ’The wind that shakes the barley’, has signed the petition in support of the Belfast Airport workers, who are currently holding a hunger strike protest at the Unite offices in Belfast. The world famous film director said:

"What will it take for the Unite leadership to deal fairly with Gordon NcNeill and the Belfast Airport Workers.

”It is a fundamental principal of trade unionism to support workers in struggle. This situation should never have been allowed to develop. Tony Woodley, the General Secretary, should intervene now to resolve the situation in favour of Gordon and his comrades”
