Fast response gets Jim Board back

Issue No. 2170

Union activist Jim Board was reinstated by Doncaster council on Friday of last week.

Jim, who is secretary of the Doncaster Unison union branch, had been suspended after speaking to the media about two local brothers who attacked two other children.

Local trade unionists responded quickly to Jim’s suspension—organising protests and making it clear that there would be a strike ballot. Jim was still waiting to hear whether bosses intend to discipline him as Socialist Worker went to press.
