Karen Jennings, Assistant General Secretary of UNISON is calling on
UNISON members to back women's magazine Cosmopolitan's call for the
Government to make equal pay auditing compulsory.
Karen Jennings, said:
"Cosmopolitan has set up an e-petition and with the power of the union
behind it, we want to hit the target of 100,000 signatures as quickly as
"UNISON has campaigned long and hard for fairness and equality for
women. It is a sad fact that 40 years in from the Equal Pay Act, we
still have a battle on our hands, with women still earning 17% less than
"We want employers to be transparent about how they pay their workers
and to undertake full equal pay audits, so they can address any pay
inequality that exists and to ensure women are not being targeted
unfairly for redundancy."
