Glasgow - Court of Session

Regular readers will recall that the Court of Session, Scotland's highest civil court, is due to deal with the outstanding equal pay claims involving Glasgow City Council.

In the days leading up to the local council elections on Thursday 4th May 2017.

So the claimants will have their say about the way Scotland's largest council has behaved - both in court and at the ballot box.


Court of Session (30/01/17) 

The Court of Session, Scotland's highest civil court, has set the following dates to deal with the outstanding equal pay claims against Glasgow City Council.  
  • 25th to 27th April 2017 - a three day hearing on the pay protection and assimilation period
  • 2nd to 5th May 2017 - four days focusing on the City Council's job evaluation scheme, also known locally as the WPBR (Workforce Pay and Benefits Review)
Now the timing could not be better if you ask me with the elections to Glasgow City Council taking place on Thursday 4th May 2017.

My message to the Labour leaders of Glasgow City Council is to come clean and explain the pay arrangements that were put in place after the introduction of its local job evaluation scheme (WPBR) in 2006/07.

So if Frank McAveety and his colleagues don't have the political will to resolve then issue, then step aside and make way for those who do.
