Former soldier wins tribunal claim against council

A telephonist who was made redundant from Blaenau Gwent council has won his employment tribunal case against his former employer, reports the Telegraph.


Andrew Bull was a former soldier who had worked for the council for 25 years after losing his eye sight in an explosion during a military posting to Northern Ireland.

In 2008, Mr Bull's colleagues at the council took part in a strike, which Mr Bull missed as he was off sick. Since then, he claims he was subjected to harassment and victimisation from council staff for failing to take part in the strike. He was made redundant in an office reorganisation two years later.

According to the Telegraph, the employment tribunal found that Mr Bull had been the victim of harassment and discrimination on the grounds of his disability. The tribunal has now been adjourned for a month to decide on the level of compensation Mr Bull will receive.
