Hands Off Our Newsletters!

A trains manager took it upon themselves to unilaterally remove a union newsletter from the depot booking-on point, apparently because they took exception to some of its contents - an article about the concept of gaslighting, especially in the context of racist discrimination.

A grievance has been submitted and the issue will be investigated. Whilst we don't want to jump to conclusions, the notion that a newsletter might've been taken down because it had an anti-racist article in it is pretty alarming.

Moreover, we can't allow a precedent whereby bosses simply remove union literature if they don't like what it says. The newsletter must go back up!
