The Health Workers Union had sought to seek costs against former official Sel Sanli after he abandoned unfair dismissal proceedings against it. Sanli claimed HWU boss Diana Asmar sacked him because he refused to support the election of her husband David to an important role within Victorian Labor, of which he was a delegate. Sanli abandoned his claim after the HSU released phone records of him talking to escort workers and viewing pornography. However, the Fair Work Commission has dismissed the HWU’s cost claim, while finding that Sanli’s claims about his sacking were justified. It concluded David Asmar had a major influence on the HSU, despite not working for it.
