Hello to all our friends in vita cortex.
After following the vita cortex struggle over Christmas and the New Year it became apparent on returning to work in the New Year that the despicable treatment of this set of workers by their employer resonated very clearly with workers in our own workplace. When discussing the issue we realised that a lot of people had friend and families working in vita cortex. To show our support and solidarity we decided to organise a sponsored walk from our location in Blackpool to the vita cortex factory. We did the walk on the 4th of February (accompanied by Greg) and received a great welcome on arriving, by the vita cortex workers. The walk proved to be a great success .

On this visit and subsequent visits since, the courage and conviction you have shown has been an inspiration to all your supporters and we thank you for this.
As day 100 of your principled protest approaches it strikes me that all the politicians who have lent their support and taken the photo opportunities along the way have gone very quiet at the moment, It is also clear that your real supporters are still with you 100%
I would call on union members In all workplaces to do everything you can to keep this topic a live issue ,For workers everywhere this is a battle that cannot afford to be lost.
So from all your friends, family and supporters in Yves Rocher Cork be assured of our whole hearted and continued support.
