University of Wales’ men launch sex discrimination claim and win in landmark legal case

A group of male carpenters, plumbers and cleaners have won a landmark equal pay case after complaining they were paid less than female secretaries.

The 18 workmen sued saying they were given around £4,000 less a year than women on the same pay scale when their employer merged with another university last year.

Now in what is thought to be the first decision involving such a large group of men, bosses have agreed – and the workers along with eight others are in line for £30,000 each in back pay.
