Congratulations to Unison (the UK's largest public sector union) for showing the world how to excel at knobheadery.
Almost 5 years ago four hard left trade unionists became somewhat irked at how Unison was being run, and decided to publish a satirical leaflet which used an image of the three wise monkeys (hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil).
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, one member of the 15 member ruling committee of Unison decided that the image was racist.
The group of four, as they were not intending in any way to be racists, apologised profusely for inadvertently causing offence.
Was an apology enough for Unison?
It then began a full scale investigation, and banned the four from holding office.
Almost five years later, at the costs of £200K in legal fees, an Employment Appeal Tribunal (at the tribunal, Unison insisted the leaflet was racist) ruled in favour of the four and criticised the union’s reaction.
I wonder if the members of Unison are best pleased with their union subs being wasted on this knobheadery?
