Twenty five former Jarvis Rail workers from across Yorkshire, who claim they were unfairly dismissed, say they are a step close to justice. Twelve hundreds maintenance workers were sacked after the firm went into administration in March 2010.
The former staff believe their jobs should have been transferred to Network rail when they took over. A employment tribunal has begun to decide if their case is legitimate or not. The hearing is expected to last a week.
