“Grayling must go!” – Cortes calls for resignation following UNISON court ruling
The head of the TSSA has called for Chris Grayling to go following this morning’s Supreme Court ruling that says Employment Tribunal fees are unlawful.
TSSA general secretary Manuel Cortes: said: “As Lord Chancellor, Chris Grayling abused his position to drive through a piece of bullying and vindictive legislation which deliberately denied the most vulnerable and often, the lowest paid workers, access to justice in the event of unfair dismissal by purposefully removing their access to legal aid.
“UNISON has done a great service to workers in chasing him through the courts to hold him to account. The Supreme Court have found his actions unlawful behaviour and he is therefore simply not fit to serve in public office. He should resign forthwith from the cabinet where he is now Transport Secretary. And if he can’t resign he should be sacked.”
