GREENWICH & BROMLEY: Unison reps win 'three wise monkeys' tribunal

Greenwich rep Onay Kasab

The offending leaflet

First published in Where I Live

AN employment tribunal has ruled in favour of four union reps dismissed from their posts over a controversial leaflet.

Trouble started in 2007 after the Unison activists, including Greenwich’s Onay Kasab and Bromley representative Glenn Kelly, published a flyer likening union chiefs to the three wise monkeys - an image the union deemed offensive.

A disciplinary process by Unison led to them being banned from holding office.

But a judgement from an October tribunal published this week found they had been unjustifiably disciplined.

Mr Kelly said he now wanted to be reinstated and demanded an apology.

He said: “Why have they wasted so much money, time and resources on this?”

A Unison spokeswoman said they were considering the judgement and whether to appeal.
