Despite no pay since their October 15 stand-down, 130 workers at the John Valves foundry in Ballarat remain resolute about getting their jobs back.
Their 24-hour-a-day picket line has been well supported. Locals have donated food, drinks and firewood, and the nearby traveling show even donated passes to kids with parents who worked at the foundry.
A family day with three local bands was held to help support the workers. To show your support or make donation phone Trevor on (03) 5335 7076.
