Concerns over Glasgow pay review

Union chiefs warned that some care staff at Glasgow Council’s social work department will lose money as part of a pay and benefits review.

According to Unison some staff in adult residential and learning difficulties services could be as much as £2,000 a year worse off under the council review.

There is also concern that some social care workers – formerly social work assistants – could be hit. This would be particularly controversial as they were given greater responsibility when the department was overhauled nearly three years ago.

The review – which aims to improve pay for certain jobs – would affect each staff group, but the impact on individuals will not be known until the autumn.

Those losing out would have salaries protected for three years and be offered the chance to develop new skills.
