Glasgow - One Year On!

From the blog site this time last year - Thank You, Glasgow!


Thank You, Glasgow (08/02/19)

The 'Thank You, Glasgow' placard hit the nail on the head as hundreds of claimants gathered to show their appreciation to fellow Glaswegians for the support people have shown during their long fight for equal pay. 

What a great photo - one for the history books - and well done to the Evening Times for giving it pride of place on their front page!


Glasgow and Equal Pay - Riding the Rollercoaster (07/02/19)

Over the past couple of years Glasgow's fight for equal pay has felt a lot like riding a rollercoaster with its thrills and spills, stomach-churning ups and downs, and all too frequent twists and turns. 

But thankfully we have now reached the point where we all can climb off this 'runaway train' and get on with the rest of our lives.

Because agreement has finally been reached over the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which sets out the terms of the 'peace deal' with Glasgow City Council that will bring an end to its long-running equal pay dispute.

So a big Thank You! and Well Done! to everyone involved.

Today is a big day, one that's been 'a long time coming' as they say, but we got there in the end because of the Claimants and your big-hearted, unsparing, 'never say die' Glasgow support.

I can honestly say there has never been a campaign that comes close to matching Glasgow's long, hard battle to deliver equal pay for thousands of low paid City Council workers.
