Yorkshire Water's gender pay gap lower than national average

Dawn Butler

Some 8,870 companies had already done so as of 07:00 BST.

As of 10am on Tuesday, figures show that just 7,590 have done so, with 79% of those having a pay gap.

So how did our region do? The average pay gap in the private sector is 23.7 per cent.

But there were exceptions. The majority of these staff are likely to be lower paid men; in the division that pays warehouse staff, men outnumber women 7:3 in all quartiles.

"We're committed to making the right changes and working towards closing this gap", she said.

A change in United Kingdom law means that companies in the market with more than 250 employees must reveal their gender pay gap stats by tomorrow (April 5).

The airline pays women 71.8% less than men on average - when comparing median hourly rates, for every £1 men earn, women earn just 28p.

Leicester, however, have argued the number is distorted "by a relatively small number" of higher earners, such as the professional footballers.

Okla., Kentucky schools close as teachers demand better pay
Fallin on Monday praised the Oklahoma's GOP-led Legislature's achievement in approving part of what teacher's want. Teachers in Arizona are now considering a strike over their demands for a 20 percent salary increase.

Another said their "clearly was a pay gap" and that because the Indy is "liberal leaning it seems at odds with the stories they write about". Arsenal said its mean pay gap drops from 80% to 17% when players were removed from the calculation.

Among the companies with a median gap of under 10% are Kettle Foods (5.2%), motor sales group Desira (6.7%), Kinnerton Confectionery in Fakenham (6.7%), Thetford's Baxter Healthcare (0.7%) and telecoms giant BT (5.2%).

In the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) women are paid an average of 31% less than men across the organisation - meaning for every £1 earned by a man, women earn 69p. On the median measure, awards pocketed by male workers were 45.7% higher than those handed out to women. Firms like mattress retailer Sweet Dreams and nursery business Yellow Dot which pay women 46.4 percent and 35.4 percent more per hour respectively.

The UK-wide median gender pay gap is 18.4 per cent.

Apple said 30 percent of its workforce in the United Kingdom was represented by women, with the number having risen from 28 percent in 2014. It said it would "work hard to redress any imbalances". But despite all the progress made since British women first won the right to vote a century ago, "major injustices still hold too many women back", she said.

Medical equipment manufacturer Bespak Europe had a median pay gap of 30.1%.

Sam Smethers, the society's chief executive, said gender pay gap reporting is a game changer in terms of workplace culture and practices. Perhaps a large gender pay gap could tip the balance?

Many other newspapers and websites have released the details of their pay over the last weeks and months.
