On International Women’s Day 2011, the European federation of Public Service Unions (EPSU) published a gender pay gap report.
The report highlights issues in relation to pay gap statistics, the concentration of women in low-paying jobs, part-time work or e.g. the transparency of pay systems. It shows that “the gender pay gap remains a huge obstacle to fair gender equality. It has to be tackled and addressed with effective measures, to avoid the risk that it begins to widen under current economic circumstances and austerity measures. In particular as the gender pay gap is major indicator of inequality at the workplace.”
The report is no longer available online.
