Reinstate sacked Unite London bus rep Judith Katera

Judith, a longstanding Unite union rep and activist in Battersea bus garage in south London, has been dismissed by employer Abellio. Judith is adamant that false allegations are being made against her. Judith and Moe Muhsin Manir, the rep at Walworth garage in the same company, feel that they are both being targeted.

In October, Judith was facing a disciplinary meeting and possible dismissal. A solidarity protest was organised and then postponed because the disciplinary process wasn't completed. However, she has now discovered that the company sacked her on 4 December without actually informing her! Just a few weeks before Christmas, Judith is dismissed with no income.

The National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) sends support and solidarity to Judith, her members and her union Unite and pledges to do everything we can to get her reinstated. The NSSN will keep our supporters and affiliates fully informed of developments and any protests and action that are called. Stop union busting!

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
