Canteen Workers To Strike For Unfairly Sacked Rep Brother Mihaj

Further to my last letter, RMT members at Sodexo voted in favour of industrial action in defence of Petrit Mihaj, your RMT Rep and Activist who has been so disgracefully victimised and sacked by your employer.

An Employment Tribunal has totally vindicated Petrit and ruled he had been unfairly dismissed for his trade union activities. These trade union activities involved supporting, organising and representing RMT members at Sodexo, trying to ensure you are all fairly treated by a bullying employer.

London Underground Sodexo staff balloted in union victimisation dispute

Staff working for London Underground caterers Sodexo are to be balloted for both strike action and action short of a strike over the victimisation and dismissal of union activist Petrit Mihaj.

Petrit has been a major force in building union organisation on the LUL Sodexo depot catering contract and has been instrumental in securing union recognition and delivering improvements in pay and conditions and effective representation of staff.

RMT Prepares For Sodexo Ballot To Defend Dismissed Brother Petrit

From RMT Senior Assistant General Secretary Mick Cash

DISMISSAL, PETRIT MIHAJ – SODEXO (LUL/4/4)

I write to advise branches that our representative Brother Petrit Mihaj has been dismissed by the Sodexo. The General Grades Committee believes this sacking by Sodexo is due to victimisation for his trade union activities. I have advised the company that we are in dispute over this issue, and that we intend to ballot members concerned for industrial action in order to achieve justice for Brother Mihaj.
