Oh dear, I see the RMT has once again decide that the best approach to take when someone has been sacked for gross misconduct and is in the middle of appealing this is to go on strike. Without even waiting for an interim ruling from the tribunal. Because somehow going on strike will magically swing a tribunal that's supposed to be impartial in your favour.

Last time they did this it was over a tube driver being sacked for a health and safety violation. The tribunal eventually ruled that the dismassal was unfair, but not without attaching some blame to the driver. Not that you'd have realised it if you'd read the report on the RMT's website which claimed that the tribunal's decision fully vindicated their position.

It's not about swaying the tribunal, it's about making headlines one way or another.
