Cleaning contractor ABM has sacked RMT rep Racquel Dwyer.
Racquel recently won an Employment Tribunal claim against ABM, and, in her capacity as a rep, has consistently raised concerns about PPE and other safety issues in the workplace, over a number of months. ABM announced a restructure process that has all the hallmarks of being contrived specifically to target Racquel's job, and have made her redundant. The bosses appear to have sought revenge against a worker and union rep who has been a thorn in their side.
That ABM would press ahead with any job cut programme now, at a time when more cleaning, and more cleaners, are desperately needed, is outrageous. That they would target an RMT safety rep for fighting for a safer workplace shows us exactly where this company's priorities lie.
