RMT union activists call for action to back rep Glen Hart

Issue No. 2479

RMT union members on London Underground have called on the union to step up the campaign to defend union activist Glen Hart.

Bosses tried to sack Glen last year for carrying out industrial action over cuts to stations. But with no evidence they could not find against him. Now they are having another go at targeting Glen.

New trumped up charges have been laid against him with a manager alleging he was rude to them.

Glen’s Morden and Oval branch last week backed a call for a day of action against victimisation. RMT has stated that unless the charges are dropped it will ballot all grades for industrial action.

An all grades reps’ meeting on Thursday of this week is set to discuss how to step up the campaign.
