Equal Pay success in the Inner House - Graeme Dalgleish of the Hastie Stable has successfully represented several thousand claimants in a major equal pay challenge against Glasgow City Council. After years of litigation the Inner House this week rejected the Council’s latest appeal on the pay protection arrangements which followed the Council’s pay and grade reorganisation a decade ago, upholding the earlier Employment Appeal Tribunal decision. The new leader of Glasgow City Council has already made clear the council will appeal no further and will now enter into negotiations to settle the many claims of female workers who were unfairly and unjustifiably excluded from the arrangements. The Inner House decision on the Council’s Job Evaluation scheme is still awaited.
