Defend RMT union activist Glen Hart

Issue No. 2478

London Underground bosses could face a London-wide Tube strike by RMT union members if they proceed with disciplinary action against union activist Glen Hart.

Bosses tried to sack Glen last year during strikes over cuts to stations.

He followed union instructions not to work overtime and closed his station because there was no relief.

But bosses could not sack Glen because there was no evidence he did anything wrong.

Now, according to RMT, bosses have laid new trumped up charges against Glen for allegedly being rude to a manager. There are no witnesses and no evidence.

Glen has fought tirelessly to oppose Tube bosses’ attacks. The union says if the charges are not dropped it will ballot all grades for industrial action.
