North Lanarkshire Update



I wrote recently about the importance of pensions and equal pay and the big victory A4ES achieved in forcing councils like North Lanarkshire to accept that equal pay settlements could be paid on a pensionable basis.

Now this affects more than just North Lanarkshire Council of course, so I'll republish some of the posts from the blog site archive which go into the background to this particular issue in more detail.

As regular readers know, the trade unions in Scotland were not part of this fight and had previously advised members that equal pay settlements could not count for pension purposes.

More to follow in the days ahead, so watch the space.
