Women will have to wait until New Year for pay deal


Sun, 16 Dec 2018

Thousands of women who expected their long-running equal-pay dispute with Glasgow City Council to settle this side of Christmas are going to have to wait at least until the New Year for a payment, after the teams negotiating the deal agreed to postpone the settlement. The dispute, which relates to a pay system put in place by the council in 2007, has been rumbling on for the best part of a decade, with over 13,000 female staff claiming they have been paid less than men for doing work of equal value throughout that period.
