Important Equal Pay Update – It’s not too late to claim!

Equal Pay – it’s not too late to be part of the claim!

UNISON communicated with you recently in respect of a potential equal pay claim. There was a tight deadline to meet in order for the claim to be protected.

This claim has now been protected and it is possible to add further names to the claim prior to officially lodging this with the Employment Tribunal.

To be part of the claim you must act immediately. You need to be a UNISON member and complete the attached UNISON Case Form, returning these by Tuesday, 28 November 2023, to equalpay@unisoncumbria.co.uk.

Along with the Case Form you must provide the following documentation:

  1. Your terms and conditions that you should have received when you began working for the former Cumbria County Council,
  2. Any documents you may have received confirming your grade, job title or any changes to your pay and grade throughout your employment,
  3. Any documents confirming the transfer to your new employer,
  4. Sample pay slips (2 to 3) from each year between 2017 to 2023
  5. If you were employed prior to the implementation of Single Status that took place around [insert date], any documents received confirming what grade you would transfer onto.

It is believed this issue relates to female members working in predominantly female job roles so please do speak to your colleagues to ensure they are aware of the work that UNISON is doing on this matter and encourage them to Join UNISON here and complete a Case Form, sending it to us prior to 28 November 2023.
