Take Action For Eva!

Posted in Tubeworker's blog on Fri, 14/03/2008 - 09:15,

LUL has upheld the outrageous sacking of Eva Bayford on appeal. Eva's workmates are now gearing up for indutrial action to demand her reinstatement - and the rest of us should do all we can to help.

There's a long-standing labour movement maxim that 'an injury to one is an injury to all'. Individual cases are never really about just an individual; they are always about a wider principle too. In this case, that wider principle is rights for probationers. Management seem to think that they can dispose of probationers at will, safe in the knowledge that a sacked worker can not take an 'unfair dismissal' claim to an Employment Tribunal during their first year with an employer (11 years into a 'Labour' government, and workers still don't have this basic right).

Eva's RMT branch is holding a special meeting next week to decide what action to take. For details, and publicity materials, email the branch.
