Sherelle Cadogan, an I/O and Aslef member, has been given a 12 month suspended dismissal for challenging racism!
A manager posted racist comments on social media, including disparaging Black Lives Matter. Sherelle and others quite rightly, challenged the comments. While the Manager was reported for their racist comments, Sherelle, and only Sherelle, found herself disciplined as well in a counter-complaint from the manager!
This is an extremely worrying precedent for the company to set. We could all face disciplinary action for standing up to racism. A petition has been started to support Sherelle here.
