Victory for women workers as council agrees to equal pay proposals
Glasgow City Council agreed not to pursue a legal challenge after a decade-long equal pay dispute
AN EMERGENCY MEETING of the Glasgow City council’s administration committee unanimously agreed to settle the pay dispute and not challenge a legal ruling which said pay structures created in 2006 were discriminatory.
Around 6000 predominantly low-paid women workers are thought to be affected by the decision, which could cost up to £500m to resolve.
