Common sense prevails as Glen Hart returns to his job

Dear RMT members

I am pleased to advise you that we have some good news with regards to Brother Glen Hart. I have received a letter from LUL that Gllen, myself and NEC member John Reid are happy with.

Shortly Glen will be able to return to his normal duties in his job at work.

This is great news for Glen, the union and all of us. Justice and common sense has prevailed.

Thanks and in solidarity
