What do Union reps say?

“It is important to sign up because a claim is only one of a small number of routes to equal pay. There is strength in numbers for change through a claim. You have nothing to lose putting in a claim and everything to gain.

More than twenty five years ago there was an equal pay claim in the company and this led to shockwaves throughout retail. It started in our company.

If you are a non-RGS colleague or a night shift worker and you had someone from distribution working on your backdoor wouldn't you think it unfair if they were getting paid more for doing work of equal value? Wouldn't you want to find out for sure? If it eventually turned out an employment tribunal decided there was unlawful sex discrimination, is it so unreasonable to say you might want to get paid the same as those men in distribution?”
