Agency is ready for steel fight

WEMBLEY employment agency Fast Track is preparing to fight tribunal claims from 200 former Cleveland Bridge steel workers who are each chasing a month's salary.

Fast Track - which sacked the staff from the national stadium project in August last year - is defending claims of unfair dismissal by the workers, who are being represented by general union GMB and engineering union Amicus.

The unions eventually negotiated a deal for the men to go back to work in September following a picket of the site - but the men are claiming for a month's lost wages and bonuses, which could total as much as £300,000.

Fast Track is understood to be claiming that the workers were not unfairly dismissed because they had not been working continuously for their employer for a year.

The cases will be heard at Watford employment tribunal.
