Max McGee, a Socialist Party member and Usdaw branch secretary at one of the Tesco depots that has recently forced – through strike action – an improved offer of a combined 6% from the company, has had his second appeal turned down against his sacking. The dismissal was on the grounds of ‘exaggerating an injury’.
Max is intending to take this issue further with the union, and the campaign for his reinstatement will be stepped up. He is available to speak at Usdaw branches and trades councils.
A new article and issue of the Activist (the bulletin of Socialist Party members in Usdaw) is being produced, updating on the Tesco offers and Max’s reinstatement campaign. The new Activist will be posted on usdawactivist.wordpress.com when ready.
