Tesco staff win legal argument in equal pay fight

"It's time for supermarkets to accept that the roles of shop floor workers and distribution centre workers are comparable." "Pam Jenkins, who works at Tesco, said:"To get a judgement confirming shop floor workers can use an easier legal test to compare their jobs to male colleagues in distribution is uplifting.
