An Employment Tribunal found that Abdul Musa, a former worker at Blackburn sorting office in Lancashire, was called “P—” on a daily basis while other ethnic minorities were also labelled “wops” and “jungle bunnies”.
But when Mr Musa, 57, complained about the behaviour of one member of staff, who he said had mocked Indian accents, his colleagues ostracised him, stepping up the abuse and intimidating others into not speaking to him, the tribunal found.
The local branch of the Communication Workers Union called a meeting to discuss industrial action in protest at the man’s suspension.
When an Asian employee tried to join the meeting he found his entry barred as one person shouted: “Don’t let him in he’s from the dark side,” the panel found.
