Argyll and Bute Council has considered the series of complaints by community company Eilean Eisdeal against the respected ferryman for Easdale Island at a meeting in Oban this afternoon.
The meeting was attended by its CEO, Sally Loudon, senior officer Martin Gorringe and the officer in charge of council ferry services, Ian Macfadyen.
We understand that the outcome of the meeting was a dismissal of the complaints which were found to be groundless; and unequivocal support for the ferryman.
The CEO is to communicate with those concerned.
We published the story behind these complaints earlier today – an updated version of which can be found here.
The council is to be congratulated on the speed of its response and for its support of a responsible and abused employee.
