Julie Hayward, 1988

One of the first equal value claims was brought by Julie Hayward, a qualified cook employed by Cammell Laird in the canteen at their Birkenhead shipyard. Supported by the GMB union, her male comparators and the Equal Opportunities Commission, she claimed equal pay for work of equal value with several male craft workers. The case went to the House of Lords, where in 1988 she won the right to higher basic pay.
