It's another unfair sacking, and once again Tube workers have to rally to the defence of a workmate. With the recent victory on the Jubilee line, we should all feel positive about winning this one too. Joe's branch is already campaigning, and like Neasden branch did for Raj and Les, putting out leaflets and holding a special branch meeting.
Here is the text of their leaflet ...
Joe was sacked on the strength of flawed evidence and despite the fact that local management failed to provide him with a reasonable duty of care which they are obligated to do.
The evidence against Joe was provided in the main from the 'rollback protection system' of the 'data-logger'. The fact that this information is now being used to discipline train operators has very serious implications for all drivers.
As part of the campaign to get Joe reinstated an extraordinary branch meeting will be held at the Red Rose Club, Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park on Tuesday 24th October commencing at 1900 hrs.
Representatives from both ends of the line will be present to give you full details of the case and decide on what action to take and when it will be taken. We hope as many of you as possible will be there to show your support for Joe, your disgust at the decision taken by L.U.L. and how you can help to right this injustice.
