London IWW: "End Metroline race to the bottom: Reinstate Oscar Alvarez now!"

From iww.org.uk


We, the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) want to express our deep concern and strong condemnation of the unfair dismissal of Oscar Alvarez, Union Representative of the IWW at the West Perivale garage.


Oscar Alvarez has been a London bus driver for 8 1/2 years.
