Star date: 6th April 2018

SALFORD COUNCIL WORST AUTHORITY FOR GENDER PAY GAP IN GREATER MANCHESTER
 
Salford City Council has the worst gender pay gap amongst local authorities in Greater Manchester, with women's median hourly rate 19.3% lower than men's, and women's mean hourly rate 14.5% lower.

There are also huge gender pay gaps at Salford Royal Hospital, Salford University and Salford College.

According to new gender pay gap figures published by the Government, Salford City Council is the worst offender amongst the ten Greater Manchester authorities.

Women who work for Salford Council have a mean, or average, hourly rate 14.5% lower than men, so they earn 86p for every 1 that men earn. The median rate, or the middle figure of the data set, is even worse, with women's median hourly rate 19.3% lower than men's, or 81p for every 1 that men earn.

84% of the lowest paid workers at Salford Council are women, although 59% of the highest paid workers are also women..

The next worse council in Greater Manchester is Trafford, with a 10.7% mean gap and 17% median gap, followed by Manchester Council with a 9.1% mean gap and 8.8% median gap. Best performing was Wigan Council with a -2.1% mean gap and a -0.1% median gap, where women are on better rates than men.

Over at Salford Royal Hospital, Government figures for the Salford Royal Foundation Trust show women's mean hourly rate is 25.8% lower than men's, with women earning 74p for every 1 that men earn. The median hourly rate is 10.5% lower than men's with women earning 90p for every 1 that men earn.

The University of Salford sees women's mean hourly rate 14% lower than men's, earning 86p for every 1 that men earn; while the median hourly rate is 21% lower than men's; 79p  for every 1 that men earn.

At Salford City College the women's mean hourly rate is 10.8% lower than men's, or 89p for every 1 that men earn; while the median hourly rate is a whopping 30.6% lower than men's, or 69p for every 1 that men earn.

The 'best' performing public organisation in the city is Salford Community Leisure, where women's mean hourly rate is 2.5% lower than men's; 98p for every 1 that men earn; while the median hourly rate is actually 0.4% higher than men's...

Perhaps someone with expert knowledge can tell us if taking the average [whether mean or median] pay from an employer is the best way to study the 'pay gap'. Shouldn't there be some notice taken of the actual jobs carried out by the employees, so that for example large numbers of women carrying out low skilled tasks does not skew the results.

Is it not a bit of a nonsense exercise? The fact is, Salford is further down the list as it employs it's own cleaners and other maintenance staff and hasn't outsourced like a number of GM councils. Cleaners are predominately women (whether that's a problem or not is debatable but it's true just like refuse collectors are mostly guys) and as such the pay gap is greater at Salford as they have to include them and cleaners are generally on lower wages which will skew results. There's no pay gap between equal jobs. One male cleaner gets paid the same as the female. A female accountant gets the same as a male one. Seems fair to me.

Will they blame the Tories?

SALFORD RESIDENTS LAUNCH NEW SANTA PROTEST IN RESPONSE TO BELLWAY HOMES LEGAL THREATS TO STOP PROTESTS

AS BELLWAY THREATENS INJUNCTIONS AND FINES, SWINTON RESIDENTS RESPOND WITH SANTA PROTEST

"Saturday is the day for reminding Bellway that we have every right to peaceful assembly on a public footpath..."

Two weeks ago, Bellway Homes' solicitors wrote to the Saving Our Neighbourhood campaign - which is objecting to the company's mad construction of 241 houses off Campbell Road in Swinton - threatening injunctions and fines unless it wrote an 'undertaking' not to "interfere and/or attempt to interfere with Bellway's legitimate commercial interests".

In response, tomorrow at noon, residents will hold a special Santa protest at the site entrance..."It's vital that our community makes it clear that a threat from a multi-billion pound developer...will not scare us into signing away our democratic legal rights" states the group.
