Equal pay in Luton, 1968

Despite the title of this article in the May 1968 AEU Journal, it reports an agreement to pay women working at Vauxhall Motors in Luton 92% of the adult male rate. The women covered by the Pay and Productivity Agreement were working in jobs previously excluded to them and the terms of the agreement make it clear that women would not be engaged if suitable men were available. The Amalgamated Engineering Union admits that the agreement was not "100% acceptable to women members".
