Stemcor row reignites

Stemcor UK and former director head back to tribunal after failing to settle differences over redundancy.

A hearing over the redundancy terms of former head of shipping at steel trader Stemcor UK Richard Thomas is back on after the parties failed to reach an agreement.

Thomas was made redundant from the Stemcor as part of a company -wide restructuring programme when it ran into financial difficulties in 2013.

TradeWinds reported late last week that the hearing was stayed as Stemcor and Thomas thrashed out a deal.
However, Stemcor has now reapplied for the hearing to take place.

Thomas brought the case claiming his severance terms were unfair. He is claiming he was partly made redundant because he voiced his concerns over Stemcor’s shipping practices.
