The East Ham Group sent a clear message to management today. Our strike action against the sacking of Sarah Huchins and the intimidation of our staff was a total success. Managers on overtime staffed every station costing the company a fortune. To think the GSM was concerned about his overtime bill. Only a handful of staff turned up for work at Upton Park, East Ham & Plaistow. We will remember them.
The solidarity of our comrades in the TSSA was outstanding with only 8 of their members coming in to work, the rest having joined the RMT. The solidarity of our staff sends a clear message to management that we will not tolerate bullying. This was just the opening shot: let's see how they cope with an overtime ban or 48 hour strike. East Ham Group can be proud of itself for its total commitment to this action.
