Glasgow City Council and Equal Pay
Thank you for getting in touch with me regarding equal pay claims in Glasgow City Council.
This serious issue affects thousands of employees, particularly women in lower paid posts, and it is deeply disappointing that it has been allowed to run for such a considerable length of time. The handling of the matter by the current Labour administration in Glasgow City Counil has been unacceptable.
I fully support Councillor Susan Aitken’s statement and welcome the SNP Group’s manifesto commitment to settle all outstanding equal pay claims within the Council term.
I will continue to follow this issue over the coming weeks and months.
