GMB Stands Up To Bully Boy Tactics At Dorlux Beds (Uk) Ltd, Halifax

11 Jun 2009

On the Friday before the hearing the Company threatened employees with the sack if the GMB case was successful. Further threats of dismissal were made after the day after the case succeeded. This could lead to further legal claims of victimisation against GMB members according to the Union’s Full Time Regional Organiser.

Mr Doug Cooper GMB Regional Office said “GMB will not permit the Company to treat employees as if they are fixtures and fittings. Many of our members have given long term service and the all have as much, if not more, of a stake, in its future than Shareholders. The GMB Trade Union even at this late stage urges the Company to discuss with GMB ways forward and to abandon their bully boy tactics”.
