United Kingdom - GMB Scotland welcomes Council climb down on holiday dispute - May 31, 2016

Trade union GMB Scotland has welcomed Glasgow City Council’s (GCC) decision to climb-down from their changes to working time that could have cost workers up to £500 a year. The Council has confirmed that plans to convert six public holidays into annual leave will now be dropped having made budget savings. Previously, in the context of a campaign of resistance, a GMB Scotland industrial action ballot closed with 72 per cent support for strike action against the plans of the Council.
