Men sue university claiming women were paid more

Eighteen men who claim they are being paid less than their female colleagues are suing the University of Wales Trinity Saint David for compensation.

The male caretakers and maintenance staff allege they are being sexually discriminated against.

Eight other men have had their cases stayed pending the outcome of the current tribunal in Cardiff.

The workers are seeking more than £700,000 in wages they say they should have been paid over a six-year period.

Nick Palit reports.
