Genesee And Wyoming And Freightliner

EDM number 211 in 2017-19, proposed by Ian Mearns on 18/07/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Companies, Employment, Industrial relations and Railways.

That this House supports members of the RMT union employed by Freightliner Group at the Coatbridge depot who took industrial action, for the first time, on 3 July 2017 in response to the employer's alleged failure to address serial bullying and harassment by a senior member of staff; notes that harassment at work is illegal under the Equality Act 2010; supports the RMT's policy of zero tolerance of workplace bullying and harassment; further notes that Freightliner's parent company, Genesee and Wyoming's code of ethics and conduct includes core commitments to respect and integrity; believes the actions of local management at Coatbridge breach these commitments; further believes that by implementing its own commitments as a matter of urgency, Freightliner would end harassment and bullying of staff in the Coatbridge depot; and calls on Genesee and Wyoming and Freightliner to resolve this dispute as soon as possible.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
