Equal Pay Glasgow

Glasgow equal payThousands of women across Glasgow are demanding Glasgow City Council resolve the long-standing equal pay dispute – the largest of its kind since the Equal Pay Act was introduced.

Home carers, caterers, cleaners, school workers and other council staff brought Glasgow to a standstill on 23 and 24 October as they took part in a 48-hour strike.

Together we have taken the fight to the courts and to the streets and we will continue to fight until each and every one of our members gets the equal pay they have earned and deserve.
