Manchester transport workers face job cuts

Issue No. 2257

A Unison union branch officer at Transport for Greater Manchester has been threatened with compulsory redundancy.

Workers voted for strikes to stop compulsory redundancies. Management then conceded that staff may be able to transfer to other posts. But now the firm says it intends to cut the workforce by 15 percent.

The union should re-ballot for strikes if the company refuses to lift the threat of compulsory redundancies.
