Rally for sacked RMT rep Declan
Southampton's lockdown easing on 12 April was met with a loud and vibrant protest in solidarity with sacked RMT bus safety rep Declan Clune. Outrageously, he was dismissed for reporting a safety issue.
The rally, which included the Socialist Party, took place in front of Bluestar buses' city centre shop, was part of the RMT campaign to win a strike ballot in the garage to fight for Declan's reinstatement.
Declan is pictured with other victimised union reps, at the rally - RMT rep Gary Carney and National Education Union rep Kirstie Paton NEU along with Rob Williams, National Shop Stewards Network chair.
