Uni suspends Unison rep

Issue No. 2275

Vik Chechi, the Unison union branch secretary at London’s Queen Mary University, was suspended from work last week.

He faces charges of gross misconduct and could be sacked.

It comes as the union prepares to fight bosses’ plans to make over 100 redundancies at the university.

Vik has the full backing of the branch and his union. He is calling for his immediate reinstatement and an internal review.
