Belle Vue Buses is contracted by TfGM (Transport for Greater Manchester) to provide yellow school buses.
Belle Vue has dismissed our lead UNISON rep despite their clean disciplinary record during 12 years of service and the lack of any tangible evidence of wrong-doing.
There is however evidence that our rep was a victim of harassment due to his trade union organising work. There have been other examples of harassment by Belle Vue managers against union members.
TfGM has a Responsible Procurement Charter which includes the explicit expectation that suppliers/contractors should not discriminate on the grounds of trade union membership.
We the undersigned, call on TfGM to enforce its own Responsible Procurement Charter and investigate and take action on the discrimination against trade unionists at Belle Vue Buses.
