NUJ London magazine branch meeting:
How to tackle gender pay inequality
The revelations about stark pay disparities between men and women performing the same roles at the BBC have brought the issue of gender pay inequality to the fore.
The industry as a whole is coming under increasing pressure to respond. However, reports of companies’ gender pay gaps suggest there is still much to be done, particularly in the magazine sector.
Some journal and book publishers are among the worst offenders – with one company reporting a 40 per cent gender pay gap two years running.
What can employees do to take the issue up with management and what measures can be implemented to address pay inequality?
Speakers from the BBC and the FT will talk about their experiences, the approaches members have taken and how they have been able to make a positive change.
Members will have the opportunity to talk about pay inequalities and the gender pay gap in their workplaces, share ideas and get support to take steps to address it.
PLUS - workplace reports and discussion of motions and nominations for elected bodies for the union's next delegate meeting - DM 2020.
