RMT making preparations for ballot to defend brother Hart


Following a resolution submitted earlier this year by Morden & Oval Branch regarding possible disciplinary action against Brother Hart, the Lead Officer has been keeping the case under review and the General Grades Committee took the decision to prepare for a ballot for strike action if Glen Hart receives a disciplinary warning for carrying out trade union activities.

The Lead Officer recently submitted another report on the matter and the General Grades Committee noted that Brother Hart has been bullied and victimised and now faces dismissal on trumped up charges that are related to his activities based on standing firm in defence of agreed and legitimate trade union activities. The GGC has therefore instructed me to prepare an all members ballot matrix, organise a Reps meeting and produce the necessary propaganda material in conjunction with the LTRC. If the charges are not dropped we will ballot for strike action and action short of strike action.

I am currently acting in accordance with this decision and ask that all Branches continue to check and update members’ details as necessary.
