The Chapter of York recently published its gender pay gap report for the 269 full and part time members of staff employed at York Minster at 5 April 2019.
The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017, requires employers with 250 or more employees (including those who are self-employed), to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees. The data is collected on 5 April each year.
The Chapter of York has a mean gender pay gap of -6.63% (down from 0.53% in 2018), which means that the average pay of female employees is higher than the average pay of male employees. In 2019, the mean average hourly pay for female employees was £14.09 and £13.21 for male employees.
Commenting on the 2019 report, Kathryn Blacker, Chapter Steward at York Minster said:
“We are proud of our commitment to equity of pay as well as to the Accredited Living wage and this figure for 2019 reinforces our commitment to all forms of equality including gender equality. Nevertheless, it is our aim to maintain this level of gender pay equality and commit to conducting regular reviews of policies and procedures to further promote equality and inclusivity for all.”
