GMB Union members have suspended next week’s Glasgow equal pay strike. 

Thousands of Glasgow City Council workers were set to walk out on 20 and 21 April. 

Workers suspended the industrial action after securing of a commitment from the council to an equal pay settlement for thousands of GMB members on the same basis as the landmark 2019 agreement. 

Payments to workers who have suffered from discrimination due to its pay and grading system are targeted to begin in October 2022. 

GMB’s mandate for strike action remains live and will be used if the council does not deliver on its promise to righting this wrong. 

Sean Baillie, GMB Scotland Organiser, said: 

“For GMB members in Glasgow City Council, equal pay justice is a significant step closer. 

“The incredible strength and solidarity of GMB members, throughout many years of struggle, has been critical to achieving this progress and securing key commitments from the council. 

“We will monitor developments closely, as further details of the implementation of these commitments emerge, and our mandate for strike action remains live.
