“Boris Bike” rep wins tribunal

An Employment Tribunal has ruled that Zack Dahou, a leading trade union rep employed by Serco Barclays on the “Boris Bike” municipal cycle scheme, was unfairly dismissed and that his dismissal was linked to his trade union activities.

The victory comes in the context of union advances in the workplace, with a recent strike against unilateral shift changes and bullying management securing the removal of the two worst managerial culprits and a management agreement to consider union proposals for shift patterns.

The Rail, Maritime, and Transport workers union (RMT) is growing amongst “Boris Bike” workers, despite attempts by right-wing union Community to undermine it by signing a sweetheart deal with management.
