Asda workers win equal pay ruling
About 3 Weeks, 2 Days, 19 Hours, 54 Minutes ago.
Thousands of Asda supermarket workers have won a major victory at the Supreme Court in their battle for equal pay.
The court upheld an earlier court ruling that lower-paid shop staff, who are mostly women, can compare themselves with higher paid warehouse workers, who are mostly men.
The judge stressed the ruling did not mean the 44,000 claimants had won the right to equal pay.
However, they are now free to take further action.
