Default The possible 'lager' strikes

Surely they are taking the p***? How do they suggest the beer got in their
fridge? The bloody beer fairy?

Hey - don't bring the beer fairy in to this. She's a decent lady.

Well if there IS a beer fairy, maybe you could send her around our place.

Nah, sorry, she's working full time keeping my fridge topped up...

Certain questions spring to mind:

1) Were they the only holders of keys to the room?

2) Were any of the cans / bottles finger-print tested?

3) Why, despite passing drugs and alcohol tests (those that took them) where
they disciplined over this

4) Why wern't they all drug and alcohol tested?

If this disciplinary action stands, does that mean the presence of alcohol
anywhere on "the underground" mean the local staff can be disciplined
because of it? If I was working at a station and noticed a bottle of vodka
on the platform edge and removed it, placing it somewhere safer, for
example, my desk, and before I could put it in the bin a manager walks in,
would I be disciplined? If, on my way to work, I find a rucksack full of
cider (as I have previously done) and bring it into my office to book it up
as lost property but my manager is standing there, will I be disciplined?

LOL. I suppose you'd be pretty stupid for not binning it immediately
(unless LU offices don't have bins).

It would appear the answer to my original question is 'Yes' then.

I don't think any of this is even relevant. As members of staff they have a
responsibility to ensure noting goes on the staff room that contravenes the
rules of their employment, and as they know there is a zero tolerance policy
regarding alcohol.

Alcohol testing is not entirely appropriate here. The charge is not that
they were drunk, but that they had alcohol in the staffroom. Someone guilty
of this offence need not be drunk or guaranteed to produce a positive test
result.

If this disciplinary action stands, does that mean the presence of alcohol
anywhere on "the underground" mean the local staff can be disciplined
because of it?


Er, I doubt it.

If I was working at a station and noticed a bottle of vodka
on the platform edge and removed it, placing it somewhere safer, for
example, my desk, and before I could put it in the bin a manager walks in,
would I be disciplined?

Er I doubt it.

What have those examples got to do with this case? Maybe you are the beer
fairy, in which case I claim my 5 pounds.

You're doing well to get five (drinkable) pints for five pounds.

Perhaps he meant 5 lb. (about 4.8 pints)
