Stop blacklisting on the Olympics: reinstate Frank Morris
Article from the National Shop Stewards Network
A lively and sizeable protest of trade unionists brought movement of vehicles onto the Olympic site to a halt this morning (Tuesday 1st March) in protest at the sacking of RMT member Frank Morris for boldly exposing the use of an illegal blacklist.
Frank was dismissed by the company Daletech after he raised concerns about the dismissal of a co-worker, who was sacked from the Olympics Media Centre after his name appeared on a blacklist of trade union members.
Frank raised concerns about this illegal practice and was victimised, bullied and threatened with violence by site management before finally being sacked himself.
The protest this morning is the first step in the campaign to get Frank reinstated and the National Shop Stewards Network stands fully behind this fight, as well as the struggle to end the blacklisting of trade union activists and end the anti-trade union laws.
