Victory for sacked Jarvis rail workers

The rail union RMT has secured a key milestone victory in the fight for justice for sacked Jarvis rail workers with the Employment Tribunal finding that there was a transfer of part of the Jarvis renewals work on the London North East work to Babcock Rail under a contract with Network Rail.

When Jarvis went into administration 1100 employees, including over 400 RMT members., were sacked. The tribunal hearing in Leeds had been deciding on whether or not there was a transfer of that part of Jarvis Rail Ltd dealing with the LNE contract renewals work for Network Rail.

The Employment Tribunal has today found in RMT’s favour and there will now be further discussions and hearings as the union and its lawyers pursue a fair and just settlement for the sacked Jarvis workers.
