Well done to the Sumburgh Airport Firemen for all the hard work they did off loading the Hercules in the terrible weather conditions over the weekend. :lol:

The firemen should not be unloading the planes – this is rightfully the work of Lerwick Port dockers whose job it would be normally to unload the cargo boats. Lerwick dockers should have been bussed to the airport and paid treble time plus time and a half for this work. By unloading the plane the firemen have been snatching money than would have rightfully gone to the feed the families of the Lerwick dockers this Christmas.


The dockers of Lerwick should now hold a strike without delay as a protest against this theft of their work.


Ahhh.........nostalgia! One out, all out! :wink:
