The Committee considered an appeal, case reference AD/01/16, in respect of a Stage 3 Grievance appeal.

Following the summing up of the cases by the Management Representative and the Appellant/ Trade Union Representative, both parties withdraw from the meeting.  The Legal Representative, Human Resources Advisor and Executive Officer remained whilst the Committee determined the appeal.

 

The Committee invited the Appellant, Trade Union Representative and Management Representative back to the meeting room for the announcement of the Committee's decision, details of which would be confirmed in writing to the Appellant by the Legal Services Representative.
