Defending activists

The RMT always defends members, activists and reps from management attacks. We won't let the bosses make hostages of members during disputes, or to unfairly attack us at any time.

REINSTATE PETRIT MIHAJ IMMEDIATELY

Attached is a pdf that explains the importance of defending sacked RMT rep Petrit Mihaj
Remember , Petrit has won an Employment Tribunal against his employer who attached no blame whatsoever to Petrit.
Sodexo have dismissed Petrit solely because he was a RMT rep carrying out legitimate trade union activities
Sodexo should do the decent thing and reinstate him immediately

Canteen Workers To Strike For Unfairly Sacked Rep Brother Mihaj

Further to my last letter, RMT members at Sodexo voted in favour of industrial action in defence of Petrit Mihaj, your RMT Rep and Activist who has been so disgracefully victimised and sacked by your employer.

An Employment Tribunal has totally vindicated Petrit and ruled he had been unfairly dismissed for his trade union activities. These trade union activities involved supporting, organising and representing RMT members at Sodexo, trying to ensure you are all fairly treated by a bullying employer.

Sodexho Canteen Staff Balloted Over Victimisation

London Underground Sodexo staff balloted in union victimisation dispute

Staff working for London Underground caterers Sodexo are to be balloted for both strike action and action short of a strike over the victimisation and dismissal of union activist Petrit Mihaj.

Petrit has been a major force in building union organisation on the LUL Sodexo depot catering contract and has been instrumental in securing union recognition and delivering improvements in pay and conditions and effective representation of staff.

Why is London Underground sponsoring a complaint made by the owner of this offensive avatar that adorns the twitter account of the ludicrously named "busting4aslash"? Mr. Slash is a troll. Mr. Slash has
an offensive avatar, that depicts what would be, if done in real life, a criminal offence, for sure.

RMT Condemns Charges Brought Against Brother Harding

From RMT Senior Assistant General Secretary Mick Cash

The following resolution has been received from London Transport Regional Council:

“This Regional Council condemns the arrest by BTP of Mark Harding, the RMT Branch Secretary of Hammersmith & City Branch. Mark was arrested despite only carrying out legitimate trade union activities whilst on the picket line outside his place of work.

Arrest Of Mark Harding A Travesty Of Civil Liberties Say RMT

We note the resolution from the London Transport Regional Council and wholeheartedly agree that the arrest by BTP of Mark Harding, the RMT Branch Secretary of Hammersmith & City Branch was a travesty of civil of liberties. Bro Harding was arrested despite only carrying out legitimate trade union activities whilst on the picket line outside his place of work. We agree that his detention for nearly 13 hours and the draconian bail conditions imposed were extreme to say the least.
