Unite launch ballot over sacked London bus rep Judith Katera

Unite the union is running a consultative ballot on 16-17 December to launch the campaign to get Judith Katera reinstated. Judith, a longstanding union rep and activist in Battersea garage in South London, has been dismissed by Abellio. She feels that both herself and Moe Muhsin Manir, the rep at Walworth garage in the same company, are being targeted by the company because of their union activities.

It is vital that there be the biggest 'yes' vote possible, to send the message to Abellio that bus drivers in Battersea will fight for Judith's job and stop attacks on the union. We hope that such a vote will force management to reinstate Judith. But if they still refuse, the union would then be able to launch a full industrial action ballot.

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.
