    Interesting comment in the papers about this case.

    In a written judgment on the case, employment judge Susan Walker found that the sanction imposed by BA was "draconian" and "unjustified"
    So I assume BA followed their just culture practices and safety managment manuals but imposed draconian and unjustified sanctions. Doesn't sound to me as though BA get the safety culture bit. Although also interesting was the fact that the guy involved lost the part of the case claiming this was really all about raising "safety concerns".

    Either way seems something is seriously amiss at BAMG. Hope the CAA are aware of this. Seconds thoughts even if they were, would they bother leaving aviation house? answers please on apostcard

    So he gets 24,654 which would have twice as much if he'd not helped them to sack him.

    The tribunal was told that BAMG was seriously short-staffed on March 1 and 2 last year when Mr H was overseeing work on an Airbus A321.

    One of the contractors working under him damaged a wire and Mr H repaired it with a splice which turned out to be the wrong one.

    BA argued that the repair he carried out was important to the safety of the plane, but judge Walker found that manager Mr Q had "overstated" the seriousness of the situation.

    The plane also had two of these parts so if Mr H's mistake had caused a safety breach, there was a back-up in place to deal with it.

    Furthermore, the tribunal was told that the incident was not reported to the Civil Aviation Authority so, in line with safety guidelines, could not have been deemed to "endanger an aircraft, its occupants or any other person".

    Mr H tried to claim that he had been sacked for raising safety concerns over procedures at BA but that aspect of his case was thrown out. His award was also reduced by 50 per cent because he contributed to his dismissal.
    Connies watch out. Greenies throwing inlines at A320's watch out. Managers short-staffing watch out.

    ...or fiber glass resin mixed at 10% to mount 10/32 inserts when you are in a hurry. (you might need some cold water handy when next do this, and don't throw the mix pot in the bin, as fires can be embarassing)
