Union busting on Yammer?

Submitted by Tubeworker on Sun, 25/03/2018 - 21:20

LU bosses tell us that corporate social media platform Yammer is a great way to have a conversation about what's going on at work. Senior managers like MD Mark Wild like to drop by to give the impression they're listening to what their workers think.

But it seems the conversation is rather one-sided: a Yammer user was recently censored for posting an RMT leaflet, which was summarily deleted.

So the bosses can pump out as much of their spin as they want, but union literature is taken down? Yammer isn't a platform for a conversation, it's a platform for the bosses to give the company line and make it look like they're listening to us.

No amount of well-worded posts on Yammer will force real changes from them; to do that, we need to use our real power - organisation in the workplace and industrial action.
