The campaign to reinstate victimised trade unionist Abdul Omer Mohsin was boosted on Sunday when his colleagues at Harrow bus garage voted 17-0 to support him.

Their motion calls on the Unite union to launch an “active campaign” to back Abdul Omer.

It says this should culminate in a strike ballot over both his case and an ongoing pay dispute at London Sovereign buses.

The unanimous vote makes clear that Abdul Omer has a high level of support. Bus workers want Unite to fight to reinstate his job and his post as union convenor.

Sovereign sacked Abdul Omer over a year ago after he helped lead an equal pay campaign for London bus drivers.

Bosses have since used the sacking to weaken the union in Abdul Omer’s garage. His employment tribunal hearing starts on 7 November.

Donations to Mr A I Omer, Barclays, account 20408859, sort code 20-69-15. Copies of Unite branch cheques should be sent to Peter Kavanagh, Unite, Woodberry, 218 Green Lanes, London N4 2HB. Email Abdul at [email protected]
