More must be done to tackle the gender pay gap, says TUC

Commenting on the report published today (Tuesday) by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and wage analysts XpertHR which highlights the continuing gender pay gap, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“The UK will never really address the problem of unequal pay until there are systems in place to expose and tackle the huge gap between what men and women doing similar jobs in the same workplaces are paid.

“The government’s move to require companies to publish pay gap information is positive, but it doesn’t go far enough. We need pay transparency and equal pay audits, and a requirement on companies to act on the data to close the gap.”
