Scotland’s Famous ‘City of Discovery’ Has A Sex Discrimination Problem

Our famous City of Discovery has a sex discrimination problem. That should sting anyone who takes pride in Dundee’s historical matriarchal status, and it should shame anyone who claims Scotland is a land a fair work. And whether it’s around the negotiating table or in the courts, Dundee City Council can’t ignore this.

Equality and Austerity

We can be sure that against the backdrop of cuts to public services and a subsequent downturn in consumer spending in retail, the pressure will be on women to sustain services and to put up with our lot. It is never popular to demand what is right when the budget is tight but in fact it is absolutely essential, now more than ever, to fight for equal pay and pay justice.
