A former employee of Monklands DC claimed he was made redundant after he 'ran foul' of Labour Party officials with the power to hire or fire, Tuesday's Herald reports (p6).

Thomas MacFarlane, a supervisory storeman, told a Glasgow industrial tribunal he was made redundant after he had unsuccessfully called for the resignation of the local Labour party secretary at a district party meeting.

He said three council members had told him the redundancy, after 10 years' service, had resulted from the fsact that somebody had been a naughty boy.

Monklands denied the redundancy had been politically motivated, saying it had been part of a rationalisation exercise.
