Lee Cornell was today sacked by London Underground
LU disregarded the fact Lee and 2 other staff were physically and verbally assaulted by the customer Lee is accused of accosting. Lee was punched twice and had his glasses stolen by this person
The Jubilee branch will be requesting a ballot for industrial action to defend Lee, Saed Souissi and Dave Sharp if necessary
An injury to one is an injury to all
3 CSAs at London Bridge have been sent to CDI following an incident with a fare evader in November 2016
The fare evader assaulted 3 members of staff, one was pregnant. She was pushed in her stomach. This evader also stole a pair of glasses from a CSA who needs them to drive to visit his sick Mother.
Lee Cornell is a CSA at LOB who was punched twice and whose glasses were stolen was sacked by LU for preventing himself being hit and for getting his property back
Saeed Souissi is a CSA at London Bridge given a suspended dismissal for defusing the situation no less than 3 times when this evader wanted to punch and head butt other members of staff
LU said he should have reported the incident on his iPad and watch his colleagues be assaulted
Dave Sharp has been accused of " inciting or provoking an incident "
Dave asked a customer if they had touched in with an oyster/card or had a ticket.
Senior reps have stated this is the worst case of punitive disciplinary they have ever seen.
The fact the work place violence forum agree staff are entitled to take reasonable steps to protect themselves and their property were disregarded.
The chair of the panel sits on the same work place violence forum accepts reasonable steps are acceptable was disregarded.
Workplace justice must be seen to be done
Failure to deliver justice to the London Bridge 3 will result in Industrial action.
Every RMT member stands shoulder to shoulder with Lee Cornell, Dave Sharp and Saed Soiussi.
