Janitor's strike

I feel like I can't remember a time when I wasn't reading in your paper about the janitor's strike.

It can't possibly be the case that this issue could drag on for so long if all sides were making an effort for a resolution.

So what's going on here?

Are the unions digging their heels in when they shouldn't?

Or is Cordia refusing to back down when it should?

In the meantime, I hope schools and pupils are not being too badly affected for it is there my sympathy lies.

Councillor death

Councillor Andrew Muir was the most genuine and loveliest guy you could ever meet.

Never had a bad word to say about anyone.

I was devastated when I heard the news of his death last night.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

He will be sadly missed.

GCU job losses

In relation to your story about potential job losses at Glasgow Caledonian University: I feel sorry for the staff.

It is a shame this is happening when management waste so much money opening a campus in NYC with no students or license.

It was hard to read about potential job losses at Glasgow Caledonian University.

For the past year or so there has been grumblings from the university union about the money being spent on the new New York campus.

It is important for universities to be outward looking and to expand and to attract investment.

But this should never be at the expense of operations at home.

I will be following this story with interest.

Courting interest

I have been really enjoying your court coverage over the past few months.

It is really interesting to read about what goes on as the city's wheels of justice turn.

It is certainly an interesting insight into a side of Glasgow you don't see unless you are directly involved in it.

Scales of Justice is now my favourite part of the paper.

More please.
