Dear members,

Recently our immediate past president, Glenn Coyne, advised of a discrimination claim that had been made against the Club and of the pending mediation to be conducted prior to the matter being set down for hearing before the Equal Opportunity Tribunal.

I am pleased to advise that at the mediation on the 22nd of January, the claim was settled. All issues have now been resolved in an amicable fashion, the formal documentation reflecting the settlement has been signed by the Claimant and the Club and the proceedings have been withdrawn.

The need for a costly Tribunal hearing has been avoided.

A further notice with regard to the effect of the provisions of the agreement will be published shortly.

Nigel Gibson 
General Manager
