Insensibilidad de las Empresas y Desesperación de los Obreros Británicos

Miles de trabajadores británicos, sobre todo Escoceses, en huelga contra la presencia de trabajadores Portugueses e Italianos.  La empresa francesa Total para construir ciertas plantas en Escocia contrató 100 trabajadores de la construcción Italianos y 300 Portugueses. En realidad la mayoría de los trabajadores contratados son Británicos, pero la crisis y el desempleo además de la agitación de partidos políticos extremistas lanzó esta huelga que es seguida por trabajadores de otras partes no directamente afectados.

Y no les falta razón a los obreros británicos.  El desempleo es mucho mayor de lo que bocinan las falsas estadísticas oficiales -en Gran Bretaña supera largamente los 3 millones- y el pueblo lo siente, lo sabe y reacciona a su manera.

El mapa de la huelga

Este es el país que según los periódicos más fachas de Inglaterra hace tres años era el capo de Europa y había superado incluso a los EE.UU.

About 700 employees at the Ineos-owned Grangemouth plant on the Firth of Forth have begun an unofficial strike in solidarity with fellow energy workers at the Total Lindsey Oil Refinery on the North Lincolnshire coast. They have been joined by many hundreds more in Teeside, Cheshire, South Wales and other energy plants across Scotland.

Total has stressed that Irem staff will be paid at UK nationally agreed levels for the engineering construction industry, under the same terms and conditions as agreed with unions for the existing contractor workforce.
It said the Irem contract would mean no anticipated redundancies from the existing contractor workforce. Total also said local companies would be providing additional support services to the project.
Official figures this month showed that record numbers of people are being made redundant as unemployment climbs towards two million.

Just days later, however, it emerged that the Government handed out work permits to migrants at an unprecedented rate last year, despite the growing economic crisis.

A los trabajadores europeos en cuestión los tienen viviendo en una barcaza, en malas condiciones.  Los huelguistas la encontraron y fueron a decirles «amablemente» que se volvieran a su país.

Back in Grimsby docks, 92 employees of the Italian contractor IREM, cast as the villains of this industrial showdown, were waiting on coaches to be ferried to work.

What has passed for home, in the two weeks since they arrived in Britain, is what must be one of the ugliest vessels ever to have floated on water.

A uniformly grey, rusting, flat-roofed three-storey block of a barge which looks like a Soviet prison ship and probably feels like one, it is moored near fish sheds and freight warehouses in a distant corner of the docks.

Not so hidden, though, that a group of 40 Lyndsey demonstrators were unable to track it down when the mass protest, which began at 6am was deemed to have achieved its purpose and cane to an end at 10am.

They were visiting the docks, one 34-year-old scaffolder explained, with the polite aim of inviting their European cousins on «that immigrant vessel» to «go back to your own country».

«Pakis go home» was the helpful offering of a youth on a bicycle who evidently did not want to miss out on the fun.

Entre insultos a los contratados y amenazas al gobierno de que se van a apagar las luces en Inglaterra, nadie se acuerda que cantidad de trabajadores ingleses de la construcción en el paro están buscando trabajo por Europa.
