Unions set for jobs war with MoD

Supreme Court

TGWU and Prospect trade union leaders and their lawyers are set to clash with the MoD this Monday morning as the first shots are fired in the court proceedings to try and stop the MoD from advancing with its current privatisation plans.

Luis Montiel and Michael Tampin are expected to be present as James Levy QC leads a team of lawyers who will say that MOD has breached its duty to consult.

MOD in turn have been arguing that the Gibraltar court does not have jurisdiction in this matter.

The hearing is set down for two days before Chief Justice Derek Schofield.
