I think it is absolutely disgusting if they get away with this. i have always worked since leaving school and working as a care assistant for Birmingham City council was one of the hardest jobs I have had to do as well as raising a child as a lone parent. To think that this organisation has deliberately kept us women down by low unequal pay is cruel and heartless. We have earned every penny of that money owed unlike the big corporations that steal money! I am in debt up to my eyeballs because of the ripple effect of this and still I get up and go to work even though all I want to do is give up through being tired of the constant inequality I have to suffer for being a female. Fact is look at the statistics of the women that work in these roles, they are more often than not either women of colour and or single moms, hence the discrimination in the first instance. Think about what women really contribute to society and think about how little say they have in things. Birmingham City council should pay what they OWE and stop forcing women and families into poverty through discrimination!

I would be interested to hear if this is the case as there were many ‘other’ male roles which were paid far less than people supposedly on the same grade at the time.

Managers bury their heads in the sand until such time as it’s passed to a higher authority. Good luck and all the best for the hearing. Price.

Reply Link Anthea Rowe 9 September 2012 at 21:20 I phoned up unison to ask them what I had to do and if there was a form I needed to fill in they told me I could put it in writing (which I did) but said I was to late that I would be wasting my time is there any thing I can do now?
