THIS WEEK IN 1986: Female factory trio ‘unfairly’ demoted

Have your say

Three supervisors were stunned when they were asked to return to the production line at Portsmouth bra factory Kayser South where they worked, a Southampton Industrial Tribunal heard.

Union official Mel Roberts said the trio were left with no alternative but to leave the company.

Mr Roberts, representing the women, said: ‘No real reason was given at that time or has been since.’

The women claimed they were constructively and unfairly dismissed.
