Oxford post activist reinstated

Postal workers in Oxford have been celebrating victory as leading union activist Steve Gill was returned to work after months of suspension.

Steve, the CWU union’s sub-area processing rep for Oxford, faced a number of serious disciplinary charges following last year’s national strike. An appeals panel threw out all the serious charges and allowed Steve to return to work.

CWU branch secretary Paul Garraway commented, “This is a fantastic victory. Not only has Steve returned to work, but we have also won our case on John Doran, another union member who was suspended following the strike.”
