Clara Osagiede, who spoke at our event last Saturday about Migrant workers, is an RMT representative employed by Initial Cleaning Services on London Underground. On 4th March 2011 Clara witnessed members being forced to clean graffiti off a tube train in the ‘acid shed’ at Hainault Depot. Aware that the staff involved had no appropriate training to carry out what could be a very hazardous task she raised concerns with the manager on duty who told her it was none of her business and to get out of his office.
DEMO REPORT THURSDAY 26TH
Victory. They did not even get to the disciplinary because of the existing grievances, her job is safe for now. So Clara was out by 1.00pm and heading down to speak at the UCL demo. Good solidarity demo with people there from lots of different unions and groups.
Of course we will support the lady. She needs it. Definitely.
