A snapshot from yesterday’s Lincolnshire Echo. This is happening in a number of towns and cities.

SPCK staff take claims to tribunal

Four workers from a Lincoln bookshop are to take their claims of unfair dismissal to an employment tribunal later this month.

As reported in the Echo, staff at the SPCK bookshop in Sincil Street, which closed in March, have filed claims for unfair dismissal against the shop’s owner American charity the St Stephen the Great Trust.

It has now been reported that the trust, run by Texan brothers Philip and Mark Brewer, has been listed for bankruptcy in the US and has no assets to liquidate.

Shopworkers’ union Usdaw is taking a total of 30 cases to the tribunal at Bury St Edmunds on September 30.

NB: Since this report was posted it’s emerged that the Lincolnshire Echo got the date wrong: the hearings are scheduled for Thursday 18th Sept 2008 (see comments below).
