Responding to the outcome of this afternoon's meeting between legal representatives of the equal pay joint claimant organisations and Glasgow City Council, GMB Scotland Organiser Hazel Nolan said:
"Today’s meeting was positive and constructive. Next week the joint claimant organisations will enter into what we expect will be meaningful negotiations with Glasgow City Council.
Our members and their families can take great pride that the sacrifice and solidarity they have shown has returned their employer to the negotiating table.
Equal pay justice hasn't been won today, we still have plenty hard work ahead of us, but we will move forward in good faith and with optimism.
It is now in everyone's interests to move at pace and deliver fair and full equal pay settlements. That's what our women expect and that's what the city expects."
