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.
