Home helps in Glasgow are to be balloted on
industrial action after negotiations broke down between the council
and the workers’ main trade union, GMB.
The union claims that the council has
unilaterally imposed a cut in overtime payments, in breach of its
own rules. The result of the ballot of the 2,500 workers will be
known early this month.
A spokesperson for Glasgow Council said:
“Steps have been taken to put in place whatever is necessary to
maintain the service.”
