Justice for James!

Posted in Tubeworker's blog on Thu, 20/10/2011 - 10:59,

London Underground's continuing refusal to reinstate James Masango is beneath contempt. Remember, this is the guy who management forced to drive a train when he was sick, then when he made the inevitable mistake, sacked him. Even the Employment Tribunal has seen the obvious - that LUL's dismissal of James was 100% unfair.

Yet, two months on from the ET verdict, James is still out of work. No doubt LU has some pretext or other for refusing to take him back, but whatever that pretext is, they should reemploy him and *then* deal with it. Why? Because they should never have sacked him to start with.

This case is making it clearer by the day that we can not rely solely on talks or ET judgments to correct injustices against our workmates. the time has come to take matters into our own hands and to prepare for industrial action.
