Equal Pay row

There is a bit of a row going on about Equal Pay at the moment, and it surfaced on Women's Hour on Radio 4 on Thursday ( - this relates to the difficulties which those of us trying to implement Single Status in Local Government are experiencing - but the problems are common across all the services in which UNISON organises. For the official UNISON view see and for an interesting and entirely unofficial website see I have no time whatsoever for the solicitors who are taking cases against the unions as well as against employers (all on a lucrative "no win no fee" basis). It is a nonsense that because of litigation being taken against trade unions, UNISON did not debate Equal Pay at our Conference. I hope to report something more substantial from the next meeting of our National Executive Council (NEC) which takes place on Wednesday.
