UK Still 'Decades' Away From Ending Gender Pay Gap, Warns TUC

Commenting on the latest annual pay statistics published (Wednesday) by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) - which show that the full-time median gender pay gap has fallen by 0.3 percentage points to 9.1% in 2017 (from 9.4% in 2016) - TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady said:

"The full-time gender pay gap has inched a bit smaller. But there is still a chasm between men and women's earnings.

"At this rate it'll take decades for women to get paid the same as men.

"The government needs to crank up the pressure on employers. Companies shouldn't just be made to publish their gender pay gaps. They should be forced to explain how they'll close them.

"And those bosses who flout the law should be fined."

Analysis published by the TUC shows that the average woman has to wait nearly a fifth of a year before she starts to get paid, compared to the average man.

Today's ASHE figures show that part-time women's pay still lags some way behind that of their full-time colleagues. Nearly six million women work part-time and on average earn £5.27 less per hour than full-time men.
