Security for virtualized datacentres

Royal & SunAlliance's internal investigation into staff fired because off distribution of smutty Bart Simpson cartoons finally drew to a close last night (four days later than expected) with three staff reinstated and ten dismissed.

All of those sacked are members of the Manufacturing, Science and Finance Union (MSF) and MSF officials represented them at the inquiry. A spokesman for the MSF told us that the people involved had only been informed last night or this morning.

The spokesman also said the MSF will represent any of those fired if they wish to go further with a claim of unfair dismissal. Whether any of the ten take MSF up on this offer will not be known for a few days. ®
