Defend Eddie Fleming

Issue No. 2089

Victimised union rep Eddie Fleming was officially sacked last week.

Eddie, the PCS civil service workers’ union Child Support Agency Hastings branch chair, was told in November he would be dismissed after being disciplined for carrying out his role as a rep.

The charges against Eddie all relate to trade union duties – attending meetings to represent members individually and collectively, including those where hundreds of jobs could have been at risk.

Members have rallied to Eddie’s defence, with a high profile rally last December.

The PCS is demanding Eddie’s reinstatement.
