Ballot to defend Abdul Omer

Issue No. 2203

Bus workers at two Sovereign Bus garages in west London were set to take part in a consultative ballot this Friday for strike action in defence of their sacked union Unite convenor.

Bosses sacked Abdul Omer Moshin claiming he was intimidating a witness at a disciplinary while representing a worker.

His real crime was to have built the union effectively.

Management upheld his sacking on appeal, but have now agreed to a “special review” of his case to be held on 2 June.
