The former leader of the train drivers’ union Aslef has won an employment tribunal claim of unfair dismissal over a alleged financial irregularities.
Shaun Brady was dismissed as general secretary earlier this year after he was accused of refusing to co-operate with an inquiry into the union’s finances.
But he fought his dismissal and won his case at the Central London Employment Tribunal.
Valerie Cook, the tribunal’s chairwoman, said that Brady had faced “blatant hostility” from the union’s executive.
Brady told tribunal earlier this week that he faced a politically-motivated campaign to remove him from office.
