Female staff at Stansted demand right to wear trousers

Female
airport staff are demanding the right to wear trousers to work.

Around
150 workers at Stansted Airport in Essex have signed a petition, and warned
they might take more direct action if their request is rejected.

They
said wearing skirts on a cold morning can be “very unpleasant”, and are backed
by the GMB union which said women should have a choice of wearing skirts or
trousers.

The
GMB has already fought a similar case – and two years ago won on behalf of two
women who were suspended by Eurostar for refusing to wear skirts.
