Britain's biggest public sector union found guilty in court

Witch-hunt ruled illegal

At a time when 150,000 council workers are facing redundancy and another 100,000 have been told they will be sacked if they don't accept cuts in their pay and conditions UNISON members would rightly expect that every minute and every penny of union resources be spent on fighting the cuts.

However, UNISON's leadership has spent three years and tens of thousands of pounds witch-hunting some of its most effective fighters. Today an Employment Tribunal has ruled that campaign of bullying to be unlawful.

All of the trumped up charges against the four UNISON activists and Socialist Party members - Glenn Kelly, Brian Debus, Onay Kasab and Suzanne Muna - were thrown out.

UNISON is now required to reinstate all four to their positions in the union including Glenn Kelly being put back on the National Executive of the union.

UNISON members will be lobbying the National Executive on 8 February to demand that this is immediately carried out.
