Petrit Mihaj v Sodexo

Support campaign to highlight treatment of RMT rep

Petrit Mihaj worked for global outsourcing giant Sodexo for 10 years, working in the catering department on Sodexo's contract with London Underground.

Following helping to organise the workforce, Petrit was subjected to disciplinary action and eventually was dismissed.

The union successfully brought tribunal claims on his behalf, establishing that Petrit had been unfairly dismissed for his trade union activities.

Reintate Petrit Mihaj - Demo Sodexo HQ 17/4/15 @1130

We are campaigning against victimisation, discrimination, union busting and dismissal of our colleague and union representative Petrit Mihaj.
It’s been over a year since our rep Petrit Mihaj was victimised for his Trade Union (TU) activities and unfairly dismissed as proven in court. (Ref: P Mihaj v Sodexo Ltd)
Our campaign continues into its second year. After many successful demonstrations in 2014 and 2015, The RMT is stepping up this campaign by asking MP’s and candidates in the General Election campaign to stop funding racist and union busting employers.

DEMO FRIDAY 23 JANUARY 2015 – SODEXO HQ- HOLBORN- REINSTATE PETRIT MIHAJ NOW!

RMT are planning a series of protests outside Sodexo Ltd HQ to mark the anniversary of the unfair dismissal of RMT rep Petrit Mihaj.

We will continue to fight for the reinstatement of Petrit, he was dismissed for his trade union activities, and these included representing members at grievances, disciplinary meetings and fact finders. Activities that trade union reps are meant to participate in.

Petrit was found to be unfairly dismissed by an Employment Tribunal in 2014; the ET found him 100% victimised and discriminated against by the employer Sodexo.

The disgraceful treatment of employees continues unabated.

The disgraceful treatment of employees continues unabated.

Our cleaners all over the combine are having to contend with bullying and intimidating managers who routinely abuse agreed policies and procedures including;

• Grievances unheard
• pay illegally deducted
• pay slips not provided
• victimisation
• race discrimination
• targeting of RMT trade union reps for their trade union activities.

Reintate our reps now - demo outside Sodexo HQ Nov 14 1100

Campaigners fighting union-busters SODEXO to link up with Orgreave justice fight in London on Friday

ACTIVISTS FROM transport union RMT, fighting union-busting outsourcing outfit SODEXO, will be linking up with campaigners from the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign in central London on Friday as both organisations seek to apply pressure for justice in their respective campaigns.

REINSTATE PETRIT MIHAJ- SODEXO WORKER SACKED FOR TRADE UNION ACTIVITIES

After the reps meeting at Conway Hall all reps and activists are being asked to come down to the Sodexho HQ in Holborn for a demonstration against a union busting employer.

There can be no greater sacrifice a Trade Union rep can make than to be sacked entirely for Trade Union activities.

An ET has found 100% in favour of Petrit, absolute no fault against him.

This is a unique case. Normally the employer can point to some area of misconduct they use to dismiss.

Canteen Strike Begins Next Monday

Branches will be well aware of the case of Brother Petrit Mihaj who was dismissed by Sodexo earlier this year. An Employment Tribunal has ruled that he was unfairly dismissed for his Trade Union Activities but despite winning, there is unfortunately no obligation on the company to reinstate him. The judgement was scathing of the treatment he has received and pointed out numerous failings by the Company during the investigation and suspension leading to this unfair dismissal.

Sodexo - why we are striking !

REINSTATE PETRIT MIHAJ IMMEDIATELY

Attached is a pdf that explains the importance of defending sacked RMT rep Petrit Mihaj
Remember , Petrit has won an Employment Tribunal against his employer who attached no blame whatsoever to Petrit.
Sodexo have dismissed Petrit solely because he was a RMT rep carrying out legitimate trade union activities
Sodexo should do the decent thing and reinstate him immediately
