Defend Zahra Tirmazi!

Submitted by Tubeworker on Mon, 21/01/2019 - 18:37

Zahra Tirmazi, a station worker at Walthamstow Central, was violently assaulted (including being put in a headlock), and racially abused, by a fare-evading passenger. In typically supportive fashion, LU is disciplining her for her role in an incident in which she is obviously the victim.

So much for all those posters on our stations about how LU won’t tolerate abuse of its staff. Turns out, not only will they tolerate it, they’ll blame us for it, throw the book at us, and threaten us with the sack.

Zahra’s RMT branch is quite rightly mounting a campaign in her defence. LU might fail to support us: we won’t fail to support each other.
