High Court Shows Class Bias

The Greyhound Waste Company has gotten an injunction from the High Court to prevent any protestor interfering with their business.

In the words of the judge, ‘it is an injunction against the world’.

Greyhound is trying to reduce the wages of its drivers by 35%, in one of the most audacious attacks on organised workers.

The unions need to respond vigorously to this blatant example of legal class bias.



The decision of a High Court judge, David Keane, to grant an injunction to Greyhound against protestors is a blatant example of class bias. In the judge's own words, the order was an 'injunction against the world'. Nobody -whether named or unnamed- is allowed to interfere with the company's business. Greyhound's solicitor said that he wanted an 'effective measure' that copied the Wapping judgement granted against trade unionists during Thatcher's reign. The unions must need to respond strongly. We need to follow the Irish Ferries example in 2005 and have a massive demonstration during working hours in solidarity with the Greyhound workers.
