An Employment Tribunal in Glasgow has awarded over £1.15 million in compensation to 104 workers who were dismissed last year at Dunfermline based Simclar International.
The claims, brought on behalf of the workforce by their trade union, Community, were successful on all points. The Tribunal's award covers Simclar's failure to honour the 90 day consultation period prior to redundancy, unfair dismissal, and breach of contract in respect of both notice and holiday pay.
The union also won a claim of unfair dismissal for trade union activities on behalf of one of its leading members at the plant.
