Two social workers sacked by Glasgow City Council for their part in supporting a colleague in a disciplinary hearing will get their jobs back, an employment tribunal has ordered.

The Herald (p8) reports that the council was ordered to pay Patrick Maughan and Ian Fergus more than£27,000 in lost wages as a result of their unfair dismissals.

The tribunal heard how they were sacked after they were part of a group of 25 social workers who turned up to support suspended colleague Roddy Slorach. But Mr Maughan and Mr Fergus were the only two to be sacked.

The two were found to be 25% to blame for their conduct in being part of the group. Both said they were delighted with the decision.
