Defend Jerry Hicks Update - CSEU meet Rolls Royce
Defend Jerry Hicks: 15 August 2005
The reconvened meeting between Rolls-Royce management and the CSEU took place this morning in London.
Jerry Hicks, John Rouse (T & G National Officer), John Wall (Chairman of the CSEU), Doug Collins (Deputy General Secretary Amicus), along with manual stewardsl, formed the union team.
As predicted, Rolls-Royce duly tabled a financial offer to Jerry as their way of settling the whole matter. The tawdry offer of £50,000 to Jerry was, quite rightly, rejected immediately and the company were told that the only acceptable offer was the unconditional reinstatement of Jerry Hicks.
At the same time, Rolls-Royce management were informed of 7 days notice for official strike action on the Test site at Bristol.
The meeting then came to a close. We await any further developments.
Please see attachment regarding the forthcoming rally in Bristol in support of Jerry.
