EQUAL PAY CLAIMS HIT MILTON KEYNES

Milton Keynes Council is facing equal pay claims from GMB members who say they have been left out of the council's local single status deal.

The council introduced a scheme that harmonised terms and conditions for white-collar and manual staff. It was agreed by Unison and MPO.

But school-based staff, home carers and some DSO staff were excluded.

A GMB circular to members said there was 'a strong case for believing that their treatment of some DSO employees could constitute unlawful sex discrimination.'

The union has lodged claims on behalf of some leisure staff, and is canvassing for more.

A council spokesman said Milton Keynes had a complex range of conditions as a hangover from reorganisation, but was working towards including remaining groups of staff.
