UNISON has won an equal pay deal for thousands of council staff in Edinburgh. The union today agreed a settlement with the City of Edinburgh Council after a long-running battle to secure equal pay claims by up to three thousand workers.
Note for members with claims: As is the nature of legal settlements, we cannot give details publicly and each settlement for each individual will be different based on the difference between the male comparator, the length of time and several other factors. This is a compensation offer that will be put to you by Thompsons and the Council. The branch does not have details of this and any queries need to go to Thompsons Solicitors.
