ITN pays men 20% more than women, new figures reveal

ITN pays men 20% more than women, new figures reveal”

Cathy Newman, who co-hosts Channel 4 news, tweeted: "ITN has 19.6% gender pay gap and staggering 77% bonus gap".

The TV company produces ITV News, Channel 4 News, 5 News and ITN Productions.

This compares with a mean pay gap of 10.7 per cent at the BBC and a nationwide gap of 17.4 per cent.

ITN said the gap was "mainly caused by there being fewer women than men in numerous most senior roles in the company".

The Channel 4 news presenter Cathy Newman called the gap "staggering" on Twitter, saying the figures demonstrated "just how pervasive inequality is".

As the meetings broke up, some of the company's most senior women tweeted out news of the pay gap report, with the hashtag #itnwomen - a nod to the #bbcwomen group which has been agitating at the BBC for gender pay equality since previous year.

She said: "I'm very fortunate to be fairly paid but I will continue speaking out for the many colleagues who aren't".

ITN's report pledged to achieve "equal representation between men and women at every level of seniority". Bonuses in the business amounted to 6% of the company's payroll, she said.

"Again, these roles are now occupied by fewer women than men".

ITN sources told BuzzFeed News the revelation came during "heated" staff briefings on Wednesday about a gender pay report, which lead to "furious" female reporters grilling the company's top executives about how it had happened.

In the next five years, ITN has committed to ensuring 50% of the 20 top earners in the company are women; 33% of these roles are to be filled in the next three years.

And, most recently Carrie Gracie quit as the BBC's China editor saying she had, in effect, been lied to by bosses that she would be paid the same as her male peers.

The gender pay gap at ITN, which runs the news operations for ITV and Channels 4 and 5, is nearly double that at the BBC it was revealed yesterday, prompting anger from female stars.

ITN's Mr Hardie said: "We are putting in place tough targets, including halving our pay gap within five years, alongside initiatives that will empower and support women in order to progress their careers".

Other measures include reviewing the salaries of all women returning from maternity leave.
