UVW anti-outsourcing demo

Security guard and union activist Cetin Avsar has been threatened with dismissal by his employer, Wilson James Ltd., who said in a letter that his opposition to outsourcing, and role in leading a strike for direct employment in his previous workplace, St. George’s University of south London, represent a “conflict of interest”.

Cetin is currently working for Wilson James Ltd. on a contract at the Francis Crick Institute in King’s Cross, London, but has been told his “conduct has not reached the required standards.” The only issue cited for discussion at his probation review meeting is his opposition to outsourcing and his record of activism in the United Voices of the World union (UVW).

The UVW has launched a campaign to support Cetin, arguing the employer’s action violates Cetin’s human rights. UVW is asking supporters to write letters of protest to Wilson James Ltd. bosses.
