United Kingdom - Union wins equal pay battle - July 15, 2009

Public services union UNISON has won an equal pay tribunal case against the Bury Metropolitan Borough council in the North West of England.

Around 1,200 low paid women workers - cleaners, cooks and support staff - are set benefit from new pay arrangements that will mean they can earn the same kind of bonus payments, worth 33.3% or 50% of hourly pay, as are paid in male-dominated jobs like in gardening and refuse collection.
