Motion text

That this House is aware of the sacking of Pat Carmody, a CWU trades union activist, dismissed by the company Pell and Bates, who operate a call centre, for writing a four sentence report regarding his union's support for a colleague who had been disciplined by the company; believes such a response to be an overreaction towards what is standard trades union practice and one which sends a worrying message against trades union freedoms; and calls upon the company to come to its senses on this matter, to stop its victimisation of a trades union activist and instead to enter into meaningful dialogue with its workforce.
