From The Socialist newspaper, 8 May 2004

Fighting Victimisation

KOLA SHOKUNBI, a UNISON steward at Whipps Cross hospital in east London, has been sacked by Initial Hospital Services. Initial allege that Kola shouted at a manager, which he denies.

His UNISON branch, Waltham Forest health, is convinced that Kola's sacking is related to the role he played in securing a ground-breaking pay deal for workers employed by private companies at the hospital. The deal won pay and conditions parity with NHS workers doing the same jobs as those working for companies like Initial.

UNISON has awarded the branch first prizes regionally and nationally for its achievement in recruitment and organisation of a largely migrant workforce. The branch membership is overwhelmingly backing a campaign for Kola's reinstatement.

The internal appeal is on 6 May, which the branch is organising to lobby. If Kola is not reinstated then, the branch is likely to go for a strike ballot.
