Asda equal pay fight

Burton Mail - - National -

ASDA bosses have be­gun a Supreme Court equal pay fight with su­per­mar­ket work­ers.

More than 30,000 Asda store work­ers, most of whom are women, have brought equal pay claims af­ter com­plain­ing that staff work­ing in dis­tri­bu­tion de­pots un­fairly get more money.

Five Supreme Court jus­tices yes­ter­day be­gan to con­sider whether Asda su­per­mar­ket staff were en­ti­tled to com­pare them­selves to dis­tri­bu­tion staff for equal pay pur­poses.
