Women win millions in equal pay settlement

About 5,000 mainly female council staff have won their case for equal pay in the British employment tribunal. The workers at the Birmingham City Council may be owed thirty million pounds in back-pay for bonuses that were paid only to certain male employees.

The Unison union said it was a “major” victory for these union members. Theresa Daly, a school laundress for a school and one of those affected, said “I was annoyed. I worked as hard as the men and I had been working for a long time. To think they were getting paid more than me wasn’t very fair.”

Finsec members are taking up the issue of pay equity in the banking sector this year, and have asked the banks for information about how women’s pay compares to that of their male colleagues.
