On 17 June, Unite rep Bryan Kennedy found out – by letter – that he had been sacked by One Housing Group (OHG). Bryan had been suspended since February. He will appeal this decision.

Bryan led a dispute against pay cuts at OHG from April 2012 to November 2013 that led to Unite membership at OHG multiplying.

Unite members took four days of industrial action in June in opposition to Bryan’s suspension (see the Socialist issue 814). Bryan’s Unite branch is determined to oppose any victimisation of union reps.
