Justice 4 Jarvis Workers and the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) have organised an event in support of the 1200 Jarvis workers who lost their jobs when the company collapsed. The protest will take place in Doncaster this Friday, 9th April.

Jarvis workers and their families will be marching from the Jarvis depots in Bentley Road and Marchfield and then assembling outside the Mansion House on Doncaster High Street at 11am.

The protest has become urgent as it has been leaked that three companies – Babcock, Amey-Colas and Balfour Beatty. – are already vying to take over the work that the Jarvis employees were supposed to do.

The RMT will be holding a meeting of the workers at 12 noon in Doncaster Trades and Labour Club.

RMT President Alex Gordon will be speaking at the protest which has the full support of both RMT and TSSA.
