Public service union backs pay gap campaign

The VPOD public service union is supporting the 1:12 initiative launched by the Young Socialists. The campaign is aimed at stopping the growing gap between the low paid and the high paid and proposes a limit so that the highest paid person in an organisation gets no more than 12 times the salary of the lowest paid. VPOD says that this is already an element of pay systems in some parts of the public sector with the pay structure at the City of Zürich limiting the top of its 18-grade pay system to 4.5 times the level of pay at the bottom.
