Women workers in two north-west metropolitan councils have won equal-pay victories worth more than£3 million.

After protracted negotiations, St Helens MBC has agreed to reinstate national terms and conditions to 250 residential care workers.

Unison had argued that cuts to allowances and benefits were discriminatory.

Both sides agreed not to reveal the value of the deal, but an earlier offer was worth£1.2m.

Around 260 women staff at Salford City Council have won a claim over working hours, that will see their week reduced to 38 hours this year and 37 hours in 1999. That will cost the council£600,000 this year and£1.2m the next.
