A Glasgow reader has been in touch to say that a dispute has broken out in Cordia - the arms length company established by Glasgow City Council - to deliver home care and other services.
Now Cordia is still run and controlled by the council - to all intents and purposes.
But apparently home care workers are being told that in future - they will not be paid overtime rates - for working beyond 37 hours and for working on public holidays.
All sounds very odd to me - because an employer cannot unilaterally change someone's contract of employment - if they do they're just asking for trouble.
So if these reports are correct - then the workers involved would be quite within their rights to tell the council - thanks, but no thanks.
Why should Cordia workers accept worse conditions - than other council employees?
Can you imagine the enormous row there would be if a group of male workers - refuse workers or gardeners, for example - were treated in such a fashion?
