Women rallied outside Glasgow City Chambers today to celebrate the signing of equal pay deal that has been struck in a bid to end the city’s long-running equal pay dispute. This agreement sets out the principles on a package of payments to settle equal pay claims.
Glasgow City Council’s Administration Committee ratified the agreement this morning. Meaning we now have the framework to calculate and agree payments for the thousands of claimants involved.
Due to the number of claims and the complexity of the pay system it is likely to take several months before claimants receive offers with payments likely to be made by July 2019.
Today was a day of celebration with the women (and men) thanking the people of Glasgow for their support throughout this long campaign.
