Another Vestas: Renewable energy company in Sussex to close

Edwards who produce amongst other things solar energy parts are threatened with closure....local UNITE activists are mobilising in Brighton on 9th Feb.

Will tell you more when I know...I am down to Brighton tomorrow so will report back.

Tragic that renewable energy manufacturers are being shut down one by one in a kind of anti-new green deal...fewer jobs, less renewable energy, economy more dependent on bankers who steal our cash.

We must build a more effective green movement and green trade union movement to fight back.

thanks to DJ for telling me about this.

Actually,we've just confirmed that only a small portion of the jobs at Edwards are related to making pumps for use in solar power generation.
But we're still going to be doing whatever we can to support union members at the factory
