Freelance fitness instructors in Glasgow are taking legal action over a £100 charge to teach in Glasgow life facilities, which they deem to be discriminatory.

Glasgow Life instructors have been informed that they must pay the annual tax in order to continue to teach classes in the facilities offered by the organisation. However, despite this, a number of instructors are opting to take legal action against the charge.


The RMT Union has confirmed that it’s workers at CalMac will take industrial this week as a result over pay, conditions, pensions and potential job losses.

From Wednesday, there will be a ban on all staff working overtime with a 24-hour strike beginning on Friday. One of the main reasons for the strike was due to staff feeling like they were caught “in the crossfire” in a bidding war for the routes used by the ferry service. CalMac and private firm Serco are involved in a bidding war for a new contract for services to the west coast islands that are currently operated by CalMac.

Members voted for industrial action with more than 90% of the ballot favouring going on strike.


According to newly published figures, the number of people working for Glasgow City Council working on zero hour contracts has risen by 18% in a year. The numbers have led to severe criticism of the council with the organisation having “no contractual obligation to provide work".

The number of people on zero hour contracts now working for the government has risen to 1,689 people, up from 1,436 in the previous year.

The vast majority of those working for the council work in the employment sector with exam invigilators, classroom assistants and supply teachers all working with zero hour contracts.

As well as having some staff on such contracts, many of the city council’s “at arms length organisations” operate using zero hour contracts. Glasgow Life and Cordia both employ people on zero hours contracts, with the vast majority working in the hospitality and the "sports service" sectors.
