7,500 low-paid and overwhelmingly women workers employed by Glasgow City Council are to strike for equal pay in October and November.

It will be the first strike on the principle of equality in pay in decades in Scotland. Their strike action by local government unions Unison and GMB comes after years of being underpaid by the employer.

Union branches should send strike fund donations and messages of solidarity to Drew Rigden, Unison Glasgow City Branch, 84 Bell Street, Glasgow G1 1LQ. Donations paid to Unity Trust, sort code 608301, account number 20275789.
