‘Jobs for British workers’ campaigners protest at power station site

Campaigners calling for jobs to be given to British workers are today protesting outside a power station in Pembrokeshire.

The demonstration, at a power station under construction in Pembroke Dock, is the latest in a campaign launched by a Facebook group called ‘Give the British jobs first at Pembroke Power Station’.

Protestor Owen Morris said: “We are trying to put the point across – why should they discriminate against British workers when there are skilled workers in the UK?”

The facility is being built by French construction company Alstom, which has previously stated that 97.5% of the site’s 373 non-management workers were UK residents.
