Lee Rock Campaign Victory! 10/05/2017

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.

Lee was dismissed by DWP in February 2013. The branch maintained that he his dismissal was unfair, discriminatory and related to his Trade Union role. After a successful Employment Tribunal Lee was reinstated with and repaid his wages for the 3.5 years from dismissal to his reinstatement. However the union still believed there should be payment made to Lee regarding his treatment. Despite attempts to settle before the ‘Remedy Hearing’ Lee was unable to agree a figure with DWP and the Tribunal awarded Lee £15,000. This figure was higher than the union or Lee expected but goes some way to demonstrate the position of the Tribunal Judge regarding Lee’s treatment.

Lee and the branch reps wish to thank all branch members (and other activists) who have supported us during this campaign. After an extended period of time the matter is now closed and confirms that the union’s initial assessment was correct regarding his dismissal.
