Unison: Defend the Four
On 3 May, after nearly six years of a tortuous fight with the Unison bureaucracy, an employment tribunal remedy hearing is to be held.
This is to finally resolve the outstanding issue of the illegal action that was taken against four Unison members, Glenn Kelly, Suzanne Muna, Onay Kasab and Brian Debus.
These four Socialist Party members have been subjected to a sustained witch-hunt after leafleting Unison conference in 2007.
They were falsely accused of racism and banned from holding office in the union for between two and three years each.
The employment tribunal ruled that Unison acted illegally. The union appealed against the original decision and lost.
They were going to the High Court but pulled out. The next stage for the Four is to seek financial compensation.
