It is now six months since Glynn Wilton, Curator of the National Tramway Museum, told me in writing that my services were no longer required as a volunteer in the library. Had I been a part time employee then Glynn's actions would have been illegal under employment law.
I also question the role of Ian Dougill, Secretary of the Tramway Museum Society, who I believe advised Glynn and encouraged him to dismiss me.
The Tramway Museum Society has formal 'Disciplinary rules & procedures for working members of the Society' but Ian and Glynn choose to ignore these.
I have appealed to the Board of Management but they seem unable to reach a decision. I think they are hoping this incident will soon be forgotten. They are now taking steps to recruit paid staff to do some of the work I did as a volunteer.
