Queen's University Belfast must take immediate action to address their shameful 15% gender pay gap.
Why is this important?
Queen's is now a leading UK university - but for all the wrong reasons.
Figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) show that in 2017 - QUB's female professors earn an average of almost almost 15% less than their male colleagues - an average gap totalling £11,798.
To put this into some perspective - this is the highest pay gap among the 24 leading UK universities, known as the Russell Group.
It's entirely unacceptable that in 2017 a leading publicly funded university pays men 15% more than women for the same job.
Join with Uplift today and sign our petition to demand the Vice-Chancellor and Senate of Queen's University take meaningful action today to address and reverse this shameful pay gap.
