“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”
“I give my full support to the shop stewards. I myself spent twenty days on hunger strike in prison and have some idea what Gordon McNeill is going through.
The Unite leadership must make good the promises they made and must do so immediately to prevent a tragedy taking place.”

“Remember the way the TGWU betrayed the Liverpool dockers? I bet you thought no union could ever sink so low again. I did too. We were wrong. The way in Unite has treated the Belfast Airport workers is a disgrace. Unite’s leaders should hang their heads in shame.”
