The 28 care workers who won a£400,000 equal pay battle against Durham City Council last year have gone back to the industrial tribunal, claiming the council has failed to honour the settlement.

GMB regional organiser Eileen Goodenough said contracts of employment drawn up by the council for the resident wardens contained the wrong pay rate and did not include sections of the national agreement. The council was refusing to pay rent and call-out allowances unless the contracts were signed, she said.

Durham personnel and training manager Paul Boyd said the council believed its contracts were correct, and would defend the case.
