The CommonSpace Show – Pilot – with Eve Livingston


The first of a new regular online show with CommonSpace journalists David Jamieson and Rhiannon Davies

In the pilot episode, CommonSpace is joined by freelance journalist Eve Livingston to take a look at the Equal Pay Strike that rocked Glasgow last year, when around 8000 women took at stand against pay disparity. Eve Livingston is shortlisted for an Orwell Prize for her coverage of the strike.

A number of the women are expecting large payouts dating back several years. CommonSpace caught up with some of those that went on strike last year at the Unison offices in Glasgow to hear about what it meant for them to be involved in that momentous action and what has happened since.
