Our branch has long campaigned for Equal Pay and we have had some success in Waltham Forest Council. However, the current government has scrapped the proposal to implement equal pay audits and publish the results for all companies employing 250 or more staff. This was originally part of the Equality Act 2010 and could have helped to close the gender pay gap.
National magazine, Cosmopolitan has launched an e-petition calling on the government to enact these proposals and UNISON is supporting their campaign. You can join in by signing up at www.cosmopolitan.co.uk/equalpay Please take the time to do that and tell your friends to sign up too.
