Tube driver Eamonn Lynch has won his employment tribunal case for unfair dismissal on the grounds of trade union activities. Eamonn Lynch's is one of two unfair dismissal cases that sparked this weeks announcement of ten days of tube strike action by the RMT.
RMT General Secretary Bob Crow said;
"We welcome Eamonn's victory in the tribunal and we are calling for an immediate meeting with London Underground in the light of the ruling that he was unfairly dismissed for his trade union activities.
"With the clear parallel with Arywn Thomas's case there is now an urgent need for London Underground to meet with the RMT to set out a plan for a return to work that can avoid plunging London in to two blocks of strike action that everyone knows will lead to massive disruption.
"The tribunal has found in favour of the RMT, justice has been done and now we need to meet with the company to finalise arrangements that can enable us to move forwards as quickly as possible."
