Next facing equal pay claim

 

The Guardian reports that Next is facing an equal pay claim from female shop floor staff. More than 300 workers have registered to take part in a claim filed at the conciliation service Acas, according to the paper. They say they are paid £7.50 an hour, an average £2 less than the mainly male warehouse staff who they view as doing work of equal value. The average salary difference for the group is about £6,000 and it is expected that 3,000-5,000 workers will sign up to the group claim, which could take it to £30m.
