Socialist Party member Onay Kasab has been informed by the Unison leadership that his appeal against expulsion from the union has failed.
He was accused of 'bringing the union into disrepute' by allegedly encouraging Greenwich Unison members to leave and join Unite. Unison were unable to provide any evidence of this.
Unison members have left the union, sickened by the way the branch has been run by the regional officials.
Since the branch has been taken over by the full time officials no effective campaign against cuts in jobs and services has been mounted and there have been no democratic elections of branch officials.
A fuller report will be in next week's Socialist.
