Glasgow equal pay women shocked by legal fees on payouts
Thousands of women who fought Glasgow City Council for equal pay have had money deducted to pay legal fees, despite pledges from their unions. Members of Unison, Unite and the GMB were told they would get 100% of the settlement money offered. But BBC Disclosure has seen legal documents showing "all claimants" have had fees "deducted". The long-running dispute over women being paid less than men in jobs of the same grade was settled in January.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-49985113
