Any of us could be assaulted whilst carrying out our duties or whilst travelling to or from our workplace. London Underground has shown that if we defend ourselves they will sack us.
That is what happened to a worker on London Bridge station. An appeal has just upheld that outrageous sacking. A couple of other workers have been given warnings by tube bosses too for the incident which saw a pregnant tube worker punched in the stomach and other workers punched and head butted by a passenger.
This is an incident that could have happened to any worker employed by London Underground and therefore all London Underground workers need to be prepared take action to ensure the sacked worker gets his job back and that this unjust sacking isn't repeated.
