Glasgow and Equal Pay

More comments from readers on the fight for equal pay in Glasgow and the role played by the local trade unions

Well said Unison let down all they're female workers over equal pay that is why me and a lot of my co-workers cancelled our memberships in droves. Hand in glove with the councils


Spot on. I for one had the misfortune of relying on Unison for EP, needless to say was sold down the river on my deal. Couldn't understand when it became so apparent that they weren't telling us not to accept and they would fight on for the rights of members. Unison has been useless more like


Clients of A4ES know who the real heroes and fighters are...

More comments from readers who think the trade unions have a 'brass neck' for their spineless behaviour over the fight for equal pay in Glasgow.

As regular readers know, the GMB union is not even part of the challenge to the Council's job evaluation (JE) scheme and WPBR pay arrangements!

"Shameful behaviour from the collective unions and well done Mark again!"


"NLC workers know the truth on that"


"Well done on YOUR (not Unison's!) victory in Glasgow.

"Your constant, ongoing fight for fairness is very much appreciated

"Many Thanks"

Track Records and Equal Pay (01/06/17)

I'll have more to say in the next few days about the role the trade unions have played in the long fight for equal pay in Glasgow - for the most part it's awful one, if you ask me.

But council workers in Glasgow are not fooled by the unions trying to jump on the equal pay bandwagon at the last minute and trying claiming credit for lead shown by Action 4 Equality Scotland (A4ES).

Here are just a few of the comments I've received today: 

You and everyone else have done an excellent job. And for the trade unions to jump on the bandwagon is typical.


You're way ahead in the game and putting in great work


Both Unison and GMB Claiming all your hard work


HUGE CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU for the support yourself and team have given us in the long standing fight against GCC on equal pay. Fingers crossed the outcome for the JE and WPBR will be a positive outcome to.

Below is a copy of the email being sent by GMB union to their members.They have the audacity to give themselves a huge pat on the back. These unions have no shame.


The trade unions should be thoroughly ashamed of their behaviour over the years which is why the vast majority of Glasgow claimants are pursuing their equal pay claims with A4ES.
