Trainee Joe Winspear, 26 and crewman Ben Laws were dismissed by phone
Whitby RNLI volunteers let go after female boss found their Secret Santa mugs
One mug had Mr Winspear's face on it superimposed on a naked woman's body
Four other members of staff have allegedly quit in protest over the mug row



A lifeboatman who served with the RNLI for 15 years was sacked alongside his junior colleague for having mugs with naked women on them in the office.

Whitby crewman Ben Laws and his workmate Joe Winspear were allegedly sacked over the phone on Tuesday.

The pair are reported to have swapped the 'jokey' tea mugs for Secret Santa presents.

One featured Mr Winspear's head superimposed on a naked woman's body.




When a senior female member of staff found them at the headquarters in North Yorkshire, their jobs were brought into question.

The pair were initially told to destroy the mugs and that they would face no further action.

But the men, who are not paid for their work with the RLNI, then had to go through a disciplinary hearing that looked through their private Whatsapp messages.

According to the newspaper they were told they could no longer work at Whitby's RNLI branch because the mugs could have been found by schoolchildren, which posed a 'safeguarding risk'.

The members of staff who have resigned in support of Mr Laws and Mr Winspear are navigator Steve Boocock, helmsman Martyn Cairns and trainees Neil Cook and Simon Rhodes.

A source told The Sun Mr Laws has 15 years RNLI service under his belt and has had to save lives and recover bodies from the water.

They slammed the row as 'overkill' and said the men deserve 'a medal...not marching orders'.

pirat

First off ==  that is not a "naked" lady on that mug  !!! (Merely topless;  even so, even if she had been "naked", nobody can see any naughty bits..).

Secondly,  the anal retentive female boss of that volunteer unit obviously shouldn't be in a position where she apparently can sack volunteers on a personal whim;

And thirdly,  it would appear that volunteers over there don't have access to the same kind of "unfair dismissal" protections that an employed person would have ?

What a pathetic, fucked up, arse-round system they must have..

More likely is that their fat, frumpy and butt-ugly man-hating militant lesbian boss is simply jealous of better and fitter looking younger bodies..

***********************************************************

An anonymous "spokesman" for the organisation claims they won't stand for "bullying, discrimination, intolerance" --  [b]yet they support that very same nonsense from that misandrist 'boss' of that unit..[./b]  (Wonder if she's his sister ???)

3 people "sacked" and four resigned in a matter of weeks ==  surely they should be having a good look at her..     Good way to destroy that particular volunteer group  ?

sleaze

Apparently there is more to this than they can say at this time due to the appeals going on.

How insane is this. Some petty idiot woman complaining about a mug which has no probs as far as I can see.

The men should be reinstated. They are volunteers who do a brilliant job in saving lives in the unforgiving sea.

I'm sure no one would care what mugs they had if they need rescuing.

Stupid stupid woman.
Hopefully she will be disciplined and the lifeboatmen reinstated.
