Shaun Brady sacked for gross misconduct
It's been a long
time coming. from even before Brady was elected he was a smear on the
name of ASLEF.
After the now infamous battle of the BBQ and Brady's refusal to
cooperate with the investigation ASLEF have finally given their general
secretary the boot, and not before time.
It was already clear that Brady was conducting a smear campaign
against the left in the union and in particular a whispering campaign
against previous general secretary Mick Rix.
For example, Brady had accused Mick Rix of conducting a scorched
earth policy in the union prior to his take over. Matthias Kelly QC fond
that there was nothing in these allegations what so ever.
Indeed Mr Brady began his reign by announcing that if union full
timers did not like new conditions imposed on them from above he would
have them sacked and employ non-union personnel - clearly a champion of
the working class.
Brady still faces more charges and has the possibility of appeal, but
it is clear that his days are over and the union has the chance to begin
concentrating on fighting for its members rights rather than a right
wing challenge for control of the union.
