Thompsons Solicitors

(4.7) in London

In an early precursor to the concept of equal pay for work of equal value, Thompsons represents Poplar Borough Council in a wage dispute (primarily about women’s pay), after the councilors increased minimum rates of pay to £4 per week regardless of the work done or the person doing it. The case is ultimately lost and the council has to pay penalties. The UK fall-out from a politically motivated trial in India (known as the Meerut Conspiracy Case) is taken up by Thompsons, which represents three English textile workers denied bail and refused a proper jury trial. The criminal case lasts for many years and leads to the conviction of all three, before going to appeal where their sentences are dramatically reduced.
