Fair Pay

Last Monday I held my public meeting regarding equal pay claims against the County Council. The Council Leader Jeff Reid refused to attend but his Lib Dem counterpart Cllr Kennedy did turn up to defend the Council.

I decided to hold the meeting after numerous meetings with constituents who simply felt the issue was being ignored. Well I'm pleased to say the public meeting really put the issue on the agenda with good coverage across local newspapers and radio highlighting the plight of women who have been told for months and indeed years their claims where about to be settled only to be left in limbo.

Our Fair Pay campaign will go on until this sorry mess is sorted.
