  1. Support from Boston vita cortex workers its a travesty what’s bein allowed to happen to you and your families.Finally workers have had enough of the injustice being brought upon them and they’re are fighting for what’s rightfully theirs.Ireland was built on people standing up for their rights and refusing to bow down to the big dogs

  2. Hello to all the Vita Cortex Workers in Cork,

    I wanted to wish you well in your courageous battle. I am a trade union organiser for Unite the Union in the Dublin/Lenister area (construction Industry). I have been involved in many industrial battles over the years, on behalf of myself and other workers; if I can be helpful in any way with your struggle, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Your issue will clearly resonate with many workers in the current climate, in a general sense I will ensure that updates on your issue are disseminated within Unite, if there is a more specific way I can be helpful, again please do not hesitate to give a shout.

    Yours in solidarity

  3. solidarity! Your treatment is despicable after so many years of loyal service. Shame on the shareholders. Keeping everything crossed for you!

  4. More people support this campaign than the media or employers think. It heart warming that this group of honest workers are treated like this and the inaction of the Government (too late getting involved) and the Union has seen this drag on further than needed.

    I commend the courage and conviction of the workers and hope they not only stay well but importantly united. having been there and done that I hope the media play their part in keeping this issue in the public eye until resolved to the workers satisfaction.
    WELL DONE YOU ALL.

  6. I heard about your struggle on Facebook. I wished to express my support & solidarity. It’s not much, but at least it something! Keep fighting!

  7. In case you would need a translation of some of your texts to french or spanish, I can help. (It’s just I wanted to share your page with friends of my trade union here in France and with some other in Latin America, but most of them don’t speak english)

  8. The Vita Cortex workers are a group of principled and courageous people who deserve the solidarity, support and admiration of all who have the interests of working class people at heart. If you have no objections I will ensure that your message appears on our website and is widely circulated in the first instance. I will also raise the issue with my own trade union and local Trades Union Council of which I am chairperson. Do you have a solidarity fund that could be contributed to?

    Please extend solidarity and greetings from the Socialist Labour Party to your comrades.

    In solidarity,

    Jim McDaid,
    Vice-president Socialist Labour Party.

  9. A Chairde! We heard about your struggle through our comrades in SIPTU and are now following you on Facebook. Keep her lit! Solidarity (dlúthpháirtíochta?) from Oslo/Norway 🙂

  11. I saw your tweet about escalating your protest, and wanted to wish you luck. I support your cause and have always felt that your fight is one that each and every person paying prsi in the country could be faced with if greedy, unethical business people like your “boss” are allowed to get away with what they are doing, not only do you need financial resolution but workers rights need protection against this on the future.

    I often listen to christy moores song about mary manning and Respect it so much as her selfless stance was for a greater good, maybe if your escalation encorporates a greater need it will have a faster resolution, Good luck and hold firm.
