That this House notes the current industrial action undertaken by UNISON and GMB trades union members employed by Community Safety Glasgow, an arms-length council company, as advocacy workers, community payback workers, community enforcement officers, community enhancement workers, security assistants and CCTV workers, over the issue of shift working payments; further notes that staff working a similar work pattern in Glasgow City Council attract an additional payment of double that paid to Community Safety Glasgow employees; notes that these workers have helped identify key information in high-profile incidents; agrees that a time when Parliament is debating premium payments and low wages, such discrepancies in pay must be highlighted by parliamentarians; notes the key role of the trades union movement in highlighting pay discrepancies; is concerned that such differences in pay for staff employed in the Glasgow City Council job family is discriminatory; and encourages Community Safety Glasgow to settle this industrial dispute.
