A4ES - Track Record of Success

Stefan Cross QC explains Action 4 Equality Scotland's long track record of success and some of the issues that A4ES took up that were ignored by the trade unions including: 
  1. Challenging Glasgow's £9,000 compensation cap and the WPBR
  2. The ability for equal pay settlements to be made on a pensionable basis
  3. Claims from former APT&C staff and groups such as Admin and Clerical workers
  4. Cases brought on behalf of non-bonus earning male groups such as School Janitors and Social Work Drivers. 

Glasgow's WPBR and JES (24/11/17)

Glasgow's Lawbreakers (15/11/17)

Stefan Cross QC explains how Glasgow City Council, Scotland's largest and best resourced local council, has broken the law in relation to equal pay.


Glasgow - What is Pay Protection? (03/11/17)

Here's the latest A4ES video on the fight for equal pay in Glasgow City Council which features my colleague Stefan Cross QC who explains the issue of Pay Protection and how this issue affects both claimant and comparator jobs.

Please share the video with friends and work colleagues since 'knowledge is power' in the fight for equal pay and it's important that people understand the important issues at stake.

Not least because in the past the City Council was able to pull the wool over people's eyes and for obvious reasons it's vital to stop this happening again.

More to follow in the days ahead - so watch this space.


What is Equal Pay? (26/10/17)

Here's the first in a series of short, easy to grasp A4ES videos featuring my colleague Stefan Cross QC.

Each short film deals with a different aspect of the fight for equal pay with a particular focus on Glasgow City Council, for obvious reasons.   

So please share the videos with friends and work colleagues because the purpose of the exercise is to ensure that everyone really understands what's at stake.

Because in the past the City Council has been able to pull the wool over people's eyes and when it comes to equal pay - knowledge really is power.

More to follow in the days ahead.
