GPG: Closing the gender pay gap in public services in the context of austerity

37

2019 - 2020

The aim of the project to deepen analysis on GPG by identifying how and why austerity has or has not disproportionately affected women’s pay in public services within and between EU countries.

Project number:
VS/2019/0074

The project will deepen the analysis of the gender pay gaps in the public services (education, health, social services and public administration) by identifying how and why austerity has or has not disproportionately affected women’s pay within and between EU countries. It will share and promote expertise by identifying cases, geographically spread across the whole of the EU, where unions have addressed the pay gap. It will capture the interface between collective bargaining and the use of equality and pay transparency legislation, the efficacy of each and how unions can make progress at the organisational level in a way that is seen by actors to translate into outcomes. The project will engage with actors on the basis that research and practice will be transferred to social partners throughout. CELSI will cover the EU Eastern countries ( SK, CZ, PL, HU, AT, RO and BG) and provide a statistical analysis of the possible association of the GPG in public services and austerity measures during the economic crises for all EU countries.

Activities of the project:

  • To update EU data on the gender pay gap in the public services using Eurostat and available national data
  • To provide detailed insights into the public services gender pay gap in the context of austerity across the EU
  • To analyse social partners’ policies, collective bargaining and legal strategies on the gender pay gap at EU, national, local/regional and organisational level
  • To locate 24 organisational case studies across the EU where trade unions have addressed the gender pay gap
  • To provide data and findings that will feed into the Industrial Relations report of the European Commission
