Bus company London United Busways has sacked two staff after they circulated a smutty email picture out of work hours.
Sacked Godfrey Aberdeen admitted sending the email to a colleague, which included a message about their manager’s testicles.
The colleague admitted he then put the picture in the company’s depot as a joke – but both men were sacked.
Members of the T&G union have voted in favour of strikes in protest against the decision.
The union claims Aberdeen was sacked because he was a T&G convenor.
A London United spokesman said, “The decision to take industrial action in the light of irrefutable evidence and knowing the correct procedure has been followed seems extremely odd.”
