Following his success at tribunal, John Pearson has again received news that PCS are continuing to refuse his reinstatement to membership, retrospectively fund his ET fees or help him seek remedy for his dismissal on Trade Union grounds. John intends to appeal the decision of the National Disputes Committee.
This is a disgrace. The silence from NEC members in the supposedly most ‘progressive’, ‘left wing’, ‘fighting’ union in the TUC lead by ‘Socialists’ is deafening. If a union won’t back victimised reps then it calls into question the very purpose of the union. It also sends out the wrong message to the employer, that they can get away with sacking reps and removing our leaders in the workplace; where they really matter.
Pass motions in your branches raise the issue at meetings, contact NEC members to demand that PCS does the right thing NOW. See more here:http://pcssupportyourmembers.wordpress.com
