We are proud of our commitment to equity of pay as well as to the Accredited Living Wage

The Chapter of York today published its gender pay gap report for the 258 members of staff employed at York Minster at 5 April 2017.

Government regulations introduced earlier this year require 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’s mean pay gap is 1.25 percent – 16.75 percent lower than the national average which is currently 18 percent.

Commenting on the report, the Dean of York, the Very Reverend Dr Vivienne Faull said that the Chapter of York is committed to using gender pay gap data to benchmark staff pay in an appropriate and consistent way.  She said:

“We are proud of our commitment to equity of pay as well as to the Accredited Living Wage and this figure of 1.25 percent 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.  We recognise that flexible working opportunities are a key way to attract both working parents and carers and we try to accommodate our staff needs on this basis wherever possible.”
