The Ulster Unionist Party are bringing forward a motion at the Assembly to call for a resolution of the outstanding equal pay issue, which affects thousands of civil servants who worked in Police stations and Courthouses.

Local MLA Jo-Anne Dobson is hopeful that this will finally lead towards a resolution to the long-running issue,

She said: “The staff caught up in this shambles are mainly those who worked in Police stations and Courthouses during our darkest days and who faced the ever-present risk of terrorist attack.

“They lost out when an equal pay settlement was reached back in 2009.”
