Employees of North Lanarkshire Council could have a lengthy wait to find out if they are entitled to a higher level of pay, despite apparent progress at an employment tribunal.

Council bosses said they were ‘surprised’ when Edinburgh-based Fox and Partners solicitors, representing some of the employees at the tribunal, suggested that the workers involved now deserved to be on higher pay.

The solicitors released a statement saying that the council had ‘made a major and important concession at the Glasgow employment tribunal’ as it had ‘advised that they cannot defend evaluations in relation to home support workers, playground supervisors and school crossing patrollers’.
