Defend Brendan Judge!

Brendan Judge, RMT rep on CBS Outdoor who put the posters up on the Underground, has been sacked following a disciplinary hearing.

Brendan was key to organising the very successful strike on CBS in the summer and management have been victimising him ever since. The problems for Brendan started when management put him on a new shift that made life really difficult for him. When he put in a grievance against them, they came up with a load of trumped-up charges.

This is an obvious instance of victimisation of an effective trade union rep and activist. Work needs to start now on organising another strike on CBS Outdoor to get his job back. Every union member in the region should support this campaign as the union organisation in CBS is an inspiration to us all, and if they get away with picking it apart in this way, it is an attack on the union as a whole.
