Greenwich and Bromley Unison reps win 'three wise monkeys' tribunal
3:05pm Monday 31st January 2011 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.
