Ronnie Fraser yet to decide on UCU employment tribunal appeal

    The Jewish academic whose claim of harassment against the University College Union was rejected by an employment tribunal was this week considering whether to appeal against the judgment.

    Ronnie Fraser, director of Academic Friends of Israel, is still coming to terms with the tribunal’s dismissal of his claim that the anti-Israel stance adopted by union members amounted to harassment.

    He is due to meet his lawyers to discuss the next steps available to him. It is thought he is reluctant to have the case re-heard at an employment appeal tribunal.

    The Jewish Leadership Council is also understood to be considering what, if any, action it can take following the criticisms made of its chief executive by the tribunal.

    Leading employment barrister Clive Sheldon QC, the co-chair of Masorti Judaism and a JLC member, has provided the organisation with advice “as part of its ongoing process of studying the judgment”.

    The JLC is believed to be upset by the scathing nature of the tribunal’s judgment.
