Diane Johannessen wins her job back after union intervention
Workers voted by more than 9:1 to strike when Diane Johannessen lost her job after challenging a senior manager who was verbally abusing a colleague.
The company said it was undertaking a ‘necessary minor reorganisation’ which meant Diane was being made redundant.
Following talks with bosses, the company offered her job back, and she has accepted.
In a circular to members, RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “This shows what can be achieved when members stand together and I would like to thank you all, as I am sure would Sister Johannessen, for the magnificent support shown. Without the fantastic vote that you returned in favour of taking industrial action this union would have found it more difficult to secure this victory. It is a testament to the effectiveness of a strong and organised workforce that is prepared to stand up to management.
