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 members were balloted and voted in favour of taking strike action and industrial action short of a strike in defence of their colleague and union rep. The GGC has considered this matter carefully and has decided to call members to take strike action by downing tools and not working between the following hours:

06.30 hours and 11.00 hours on Monday 4th August 2014

We must see justice done and I urge our Sodexo members all to fully support the strike in defence of their colleague and rep.
