Former BFT manager wins unpaid wages case

BORDERS Forest Trust (BFT) was ordered to pay a former farm manager nearly £1,000 in unpaid wages at a recent employment tribunal in Edinburgh.

The ex-manager of Corehead Farm, near Moffat, Ed Glenwright lost his case for breach of contract but won his case for unpaid wages and the charity was told to pay him £982.26 in the tribunal judgement made on April 3.

Yorkshire-born Mr Glenwright was employed to run the 1,580-acre Corehead Farm, home to the Devils’ Beef Tub, in spring 2010.
