Update on Trust Activities

Published on Saturday 16th May, 2015 by Celtic Trust

Member Update


The Trust continually work to promote the interests of our members and all Celtic supporters for the good of Celtic Football Club, and we would like to update you on some of the current issues we are progressing.

  • The Trust AGM resolution on making Celtic a Living Wage employer: as of today we have still not heard from Celtic regarding their decision to consult staff on a wage increase. We will continue our campaign on Living Wage accreditation at Celtic and will update you on developments.
  • Membership renewals: as of January 2016, 50% of all membership subscriptions will be used to increase our shareholding in Celtic Plc.
  • Resolutions for 2015 AGM: the process for submitting resolutions to the Celtic AGM is lengthy and arduous.  As usual we will be seeking membership support for the resolution requisitions in the near future.
  • Following incidents of heavy handed policing at the recent away match in Aberdeen the Trust will be conducting research into the legal position re policing of sporting events, and investigating the possibility of facilitating legal observer training for fans travelling to away matches. This is likely to come at a cost and we will be liaising with and seeking assistance from other fans groups.
  • Fans against Criminalisation (FAC): The Offensive Behaviour at Football matches and Threatening Communications Act must be reviewed before the end of August. So far none of the MSPs we have spoken to are completely sure of what form this review will take but have agreed to follow this up. FAC are campaigning for the voices of fans to be part of the review and updates on the work of FAC can be found on their website here http://fansagainstcriminalisation.com/

          Key points of note:

  • Petition against the Act stands at almost 6000. Please sign online and circulate to friends and supporters. There will also be an opportunity to sign before the final home match with Inverness.
  • A FAC public meeting will be held in the near future please watch the website for details.
