US Teamsters Demonstration at National Express AGM Posted to RMTv May 9, 2013
RMT joined a 20 strong delegation of US Teamsters at a protest against union-busting outside the AGM of global transport giant National Express today, May 9, 2013. National Express, the second-biggest operator of school buses in the US, stands accused of disciplining and sacking workers involved in union activities, as well as putting union activists under surveillance. In a letter to be delivered to the company's bosses, Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa said that the company "continues to violate the wishes of workers who wish to form a union and engage in collective bargaining." Mr Hoffa said that the company's policies meant workers were being deprived of "decent working conditions and respect." Filmed and edited by Andrew Brattle.
