Equal pay cases v Glasgow City Council and others
Our appeal at the Employment Appeal Tribunal in Edinburgh took place on 9th – 11th December 2014. However, the appeal hearing did not conclude and further dates have been set for 12 -15th May 2015. While the appeal is underway we cannot make public comment but we will update the website if there are any significant developments.
We have an expert legal team instructed on behalf of the 5,500 claimants represented by Fox and Partners. We have instructed one of the top QCs in the UK, Mr Robin Allen, who is an expert in the field of discrimination and equal pay law. In addition we have top Scottish Counsel Mr Jonathan Mitchell QC. We have undertaken considerable preparation for the appeal and have worked in full cooperation with the legal representatives instructed for union backed claimants.
Please note that, given the number of claimants involved in this case, it is difficult to respond to individual telephone calls and e-mails. If there are any developments in relation to your individual case we have a professional duty to write to you. In the meantime we appreciate your continued patience and cooperation and ask you to keep visiting our website for updates. If you do not have a computer at home your local library should be able to assist you.
The first equal pay cases against Glasgow City Council were lodged in summer 2005. Please be assured that, almost a decade later, we are doing everything in our power to bring your case to a successful conclusion as soon as possible. We remain confident that we have strong grounds of appeal and we will keep you updated if there are any further developments.
