Stop the victimisation of RMT rep/activist Glen Hart by London Underground

The RMT are demonstrating against the unfair victimisation of Glen Hart who has been targeted solely because he is a RMT activist and he loses a station during last years OT ban because he had no relief.

LUL have since tried to discipline Glen with unfounded and untrue allegations.

This time Glen is accused of being " horrible" to a manager

Glen Hart - targeted by London Underground for Trade Union activities

They have already had one crack at him - and now they are back for another.

Glen Hart was following RMT instructions not to work over time during the FFFS dispute.

They tried to sack him for closing his station because there was no relief.

They are now perusing more trumped up charges against Glen 

This time they centre on being rude to a manager - no witnesses and no evidence.

Please publicise Glens case around your workplace.

The RMT have vowed to defend Glen with everything we have
