Glasgow Update

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) appears to be moving at the speed of a glacier as far as the long-awaited decision in relation to Glasgow City Council is concerned.

If you ask me, the delay is completely ridiculous but that's the current state of play - and as soon as there is any further news it will be reported on the blog.   

Glasgow City Council (21/11/15)

Glasgow is another area where there is a steady stream of enquires from A4ES clients for news about the Employment Appeal Tribunal (ETA) hearing which ended in the middle of May 2015.

Now everyone knows that the courts in Scotland work at a snail's pace and sometimes this affects the Employment Tribunal system as well.

So, understandably people are getting fed up with the lack of news from the ETA after more than six months and they get in touch with me on a regular basis to ask if there's any news to report.

My answer is always the same - that if there were any developments, then the details would have been posted on the blog site already, but I completely understand people's sense of frustration at the slow speed at which things move.

Rest assured that as soon as I hear anything I'll share the details on Twitter and the blog site and if you're looking to do something practical in the meantime, why not sign my petition about making the trade unions more accountable to their members.
