School janitors employed by Glasgow City Council have voted overwhelmingly to take industrial action in protest at the withdrawal of an extra responsibility payment, reports The Herald (p5).

They voted to withdraw non-contractual overtime - done on a voluntary basis - after councillors declared they should be given no extra payments for operating school CCTV and door-entry security systems.

A statement issued by the council said: 'The action, taken at short notice, has required education services to cancel all out-of-hours activities in the affected schools, and will mean after-school care will cease at 4.45pm.'

Martin Doran, GMB regional organiser, said: 'Janitors are being left in charge of thousands of pounds worth of equipment and are being held responsible for that equipment. They don't see it as being part of their day-to-day duties.'
