    Are we to take it that this means that being a union delegate somehow confers a "cloak of invisibility" or a get out jail free card if they are suspected of, or engage in misconduct in the workplace? Or that FWA will be able to insert themselves into the employment relationship by being able to make assumptions or draw conclusions about an employers intent from material which might not be in evidence?
