RMT tells LU 'end the bullying culture' following employment tribunal loss

RMT says that major employment tribunal loss by London Underground is a wake-up call to end the culture of picking on staff

TUBE UNION RMT today called on London Underground to end the culture of picking on staff and misusing procedures after the company lost an important employment tribunal case, costing the taxpayer a six figure sum in the process.
The driver in question was re-instated by LU yesterday at a resolution meeting with the Employment Tribunal Judge and London Underground management.

Not only have LU re-instated the member back to his driver position but they have also agreed to back pay all his wages - well over a years worth - and pay his legal costs plus compensation. All due to the fact that trumped up charges were levelled at him with procedures bent and misused to try and make them stick.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
“RMT is delighted with the outcome of this case but our member should never have been subjected to this travesty of justice from the start which left him with an axe hanging over his head due to appalling mismanagement by London Underground.

“The victory, which will cost the London taxpayer a packet due to the vindictive attitude of the company, is ringing out across the combine as staff take note of both the background and outcome. It proves that you need a strong trade union on your side when it’s your name in the management frame.

“The whole debacle also serves as a wake-up call to London Underground to end the bullying culture which is rife throughout the company and stop setting up and picking off individual staff. The attempt to rule by fear has been exposed by this case and RMT is demanding it is called to a halt immediately.”
