SOME 75 tube union activists attended an impressive meeting last week to defend victimised RMT union rep Glenroy Watson. Among the platform speakers were RMT general secretary Bob Crow, London organiser Booby Law and Brian Munro, secretary of the London Transport Regional Council of the union.
They all spoke of the attack on a longstanding activist. A speaker from the TUC's black workers' conference underlined London Underground's attack on a leading black trade unionist. The union is to move to ballot all its members in the Finsbury Park area in north London if the victimisation is not lifted.
