A trade union is taking Camden Council to court over the “unfair dismissal” of a former Hampstead school caretaker.
The GMB union, which represents public workers including council staff, is bringing the claim after Dennis McNulty was made redundant in July 2019 from his post as premises manager for New End Primary School.
Mr McNulty had lived in a property linked to the council-run school for more than 30 years.
GMB is taking the claim of unfair dismissal to the London Central Employment Tribunal in early December.
The trade union claims New End Primary School wanted to take Mr McNulty’s property back as additional space, but that this breached the terms of the caretaker’s contract.

Mr McNulty, represented by Pattinson and Brewer, said he had refused to accept the same job on “less favourable” terms by the council.
Camden Council declined to comment ahead of the hearing.
