A Scottish appeals panel has been set up to deal with reorganisation grievances which are not resolved locally.

The panel will deal only with cases where an authority has failed to follow Staff Commission advice on staff allocation or matching staff to posts.

The commission has drawn up the panel's procedures with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities and Unison. A member of Cosla and Unison will sit on the panel, chaired by a Staff Commission representative.

Its remit is to consider cases where local appeals machinery has failed to produce a satisfactory outcome.

A joint statement from Pat Watters, convener of Cosla's personnel services committee, and Mark Irvine of Unison said: 'We hope this ultimate safety net will show staff . . . that we are taking all possible steps to put in place a system that will deal with any difficulties quickly and smoothly.'
