GLASGOW SOCIAL WORK DIRECTOR LODGES CLAIM OVER PAY CUT

Glasgow City Council social work director Mary Hartnoll has lodged an industrial tribunal claim against an£8,000 fall in salary following reorganisation.

Mary Hartnoll successfully applied for the Glasgow job while her previous employer, Strathclyde RC, was being disbanded. Her annual salary at Strathclyde was£86,000; she now earns£78,000 a year.

Her claim is backed by Unison, which last year registered 500 tribunal cases on behalf of staff who had taken a pay cut because of reorganisation. The union hopes to announce a test case in the next two weeks.

Mark Irvine, Unison head of local government in Scotland, said the claimants with the strongest cases were those who were transferred into new jobs and received a pay cut rather than those who won posts through open competition and voluntarily accepted lower pay.
