We told you last week how almost 3000 female West Dunbartonshire Council workers who were unfairly paid less than male colleagues have missed out on the chance to claw back thousands of pounds.
West Dunbartonshire Council voted to deny the workers - a third of whom are among the lowest paid the chance to claim the cash.
Readers shared their thoughts on the move on our Facebook page.
Councillor Jim Bollan, who defended the underpaid women at the council meeting where the decision was made, said: “We wanted to pay the women who missed out in full, with an ex-gratia payment.
“Over the years dozens of highly paid predominately male officials taking early retirement have been given additional years onto their pensions as a golden handshake.
“These additional payments were made via ex-gratia payments.
“Why are low paid women workers being treated differently?”
Linsey Mercer said: “That is shocking.
“But bet it wouldn’t happen at the top of the chain - it’s always the ones who can least afford to miss out.
“How did the union not set up meetings with everyone so they were clear on what to do?Then they wouldn’t have missed out.”
Nicola Snedden agreed: “That is a disgrace.
“We are living in 2017 are we not? Setting women back like this is outrageous.”
Laura Cameron said: “Labour were in administration when the time bar ran out in March 2017 for these women to claim.
“Yet they did absolutely nothing to inform women who were not in Unions.
“There could also be other reasons that people did not claim.
“Given there was a legal time bar that had passed there was nothing to be done.”
Janine Neill added: “And yet some folk will try to have you believe the gender pay gap doesn’t exist.”
The issue was scheduled to be held in private but was discussed in front of the press and public after oposition councillors spoke out.
John Paul Lusk added: “We lambasted Labour for tying to take decisions in private and now the SNP want to pull the same trick.
“What is it with councillors, if they’re not willing to argue their own point of view in public then stand down.
“Stop hiding behind the party whip, it’s laughable it’s even used in local government.”
