Women de­serve equal treat­ment

Evening Times - - NEWS - Gra­ham Shields Edi­tor

THE is­sue of the equal pay claim for women is a huge one for the city to re­solve.

How­ever, it is as com­plex as it is im­por­tant, and we can ex­pect it to take a con­sid­er­able length of time to ar­rive at a so­lu­tion.

The prin­ci­ple that the fe­male work­ers who were un­der­paid for years de­serve com­pen­sa­tion is in­dis­putable.

The scale of the pay­outs are huge and it will take cre­ative think­ing to give the women what they are due while pro­tect­ing fu­ture ser­vice de­liv­ery.

It is es­sen­tial that ev­ery­one con­cerned is in­volved in ar­riv­ing at a set­tle­ment.
