Jimmy Johnson has told the West Dunbartonshire Against Austerity site on social media that ex Council employees, who left before the recent pay award, are entitled to the difference.
He wrote: “Just a heads up to any former employees who left the Council 2018/2019. Unless you contact the council about the pay award back pay they WILL NOT contact you and therefore not pay you the money you are owed!
“Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name address and either employee number or date of birth and National insurance number and confirm if your bank details are still the same.”
Maureen Harkins Walker said she has been in touch with them and they can’t advise when the people who have left will get their money.
She said: “Everyone still employed there got it in their pay.”
West Dunbartonshire Council refuse to comment to The Democrat.
Meanwhile, for readers interested in public services and how they are run by and for the public , Danielle Donnachie has written to West Dunbartonshire Against Austerity to flag up two meetings happening this week.
The meetings are to discuss NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s Moving Forward Together Programme. Moving Forward Together is the name given to the health board’s service change programme, which is a review of all services. Everything from cancer care to Out of Hours provision.
These meetings will be attended by health board representatives and will provide an opportunity for people in our community to have their say; to tell the health board what matters to us, and to ensure that vital services remain local.
Details of the meetings, the first of which is tonight Tuesday in the Concord at Dumbarton at 7.30pm and in Helensburgh Parish Church hall on Thursday night at 7pm (note the start time differences) are in the advert above.
