UVW secure reinstatement of striking worker

This is Godwin, he is a cleaner at St Mary’s hospital employed by Sodhexo. Godwin, along with fellow UVW Union members has been on strike seeking insourcing of contracts.
In flagrant breach of employment protections for striking employees Sodexo sacked him as soon as he returned to work. Sodexo claimed he was on a zero hours contract despite never having been told this and working Monday to Friday from 7am to 3pm every day.
Within two days after UVW began campaigning on this injustice, and just as importantly fellow members voiced their anger, Sodexo reversed its position and reinstated him to his role.
There is power in a union.
