Swedish School: FAU continues to claim layoffs’ withdrawal

Published on Oct 25, 2014 Tags: , ,
On October 17, Berlin Labour Court ruled the first case of a FAU member, a teacher for sports and natural sciences, laid-off by Swedish School in Berlin. The charge to withdraw the dismissal has been rejected. By no means, this decision changes the facts that a) this educational facility did not rehire – after a mass lay-off which did hit the whole staff – exactly these employees who are unionised, and b) other people have been hired to do their work, in spite of repeated claims by the school that “no external recruitments” would be effected.

Die FAU Berlin unterstrich in der Vergangenheit bei mehreren Aktionen, dass sie diesen gewerkschaftsfeindlichen Kurs der Geschäftsführerin nicht dulden wird und eine Rücknahme der Kündigungen fordert. Im November geht der Prozess weiter mit dem nächsten FAU-Mitglied. Das letzte Wort zu diesem Thema ist noch lange nicht gesprochen!
