BP boss finds out he just lost the Hitler meme case

 Mein Führer … Steiner …                                                                                                                   

A BP refinery worker sacked for mocking the company’s approach to bargaining over pay through a popular Hitler meme has had a decisive win after the company took the case all the way to the full bench of the Federal Court.

Australian Workers Union secretary Daniel Walton, who represented Mr Tracey, said BP had forced him to endure two years of stress about his livelihood…

“Australian workers have always been able to take the piss out of their bosses, with their colleagues, in their own time,” he said. “For BP management spend so much time arguing otherwise reveals real arrogance.”

He said BP should apologise to Mr Tracey and its workforce for dragging out the dispute.

 
This was the first time in legal history that a company asked the full bench of the Federal Court (or any court) to certify, as it were, that its top executives were not in fact Nazis – and the court dismissed its case. LOL.

    Go woke, go broke …

    If you have to assert that you’re not a Nazi…

    Any link to the video?

    Well done to the unions for supporting this man to the hilt.

    The corporatists are pure evil and this was a righteous cause.

    It sets precedent….if the bloke had lost, think of what any company could get away with…..

    Ridiculous. Employees have been caught stealing from workplaces and can’t be sacked (meanwhile the harpies are screeching about “wage theft”); workers found to be deliberately breaching critical workplace safety rules can’t be sacked (and the harpies are screeching for “industrial manslaughter” laws); and now workers who abuse their bosses can’t be sacked (but the harpies screech about “workplace bullying”). It’s all gone a bit one-sided.

    Very well put.

    BHP executives are Green-lefties and international socialists, rather than national socialists.

    The internationalists are so keen to disassociate themselves from their own countries when in such rarefied circles but when they retire they must choose a place as home. It would be interesting to see where that is.

    So now it’s okay to do the same thing for union leaders, politicians and judges? Thanks Federal Court for giving us just that little bit more of free speech without fear of defamation. I suppose comparison to other mass murderers such as Mao, Stalin, Lenin, the Castros, Mugabe, the Kim Dynasty, WHO management and the racist fascist Chinese leaders is also okay?

    Um, CL, you do realize that this is kind of a leftist shakedown of an employer?

    Short of murdering a fellow employee you will be reinstated. And even then it is probably 50:50.

    A BP exec heads off to court.

    An own goal by each side. The woke fascists on one side and the Union fascists on the other. A good win for free speech. Keep shooting yourselves in the feet, leftards.

  16. It’s OK to slag off on your employer, but don’t expect to be employed by him for much longer….until now.
    This is a stupid, stupid decision.

    Ubique et al.

    The company involved here is BP not BHP. No Hungarians at BP, just Baltz and Poles.

    There fixed it.
