125 total views, 1 views today RNLI reveals latest gender pay gap figures RNLI’s latest gender pay gap figures reveal little difference between how men and women are paid with women in fact earning 3.1% more on average.RNLI released its gender pay gap figures as required by regulations, revealing its gap to be -3.1%, based on an average hourly rate (the mean average) for men and women employed by the charity in Great Britain.This means, on average, women at the RNLI are paid 3.1% more than men. This equates to 51 pence more per hour. The gap is above that of 2017, when it was 0.7%, which, the charity says, is largely due to the differing employed population in comparison to the previous year’s report. In 2018, seasonal lifeguards were employed and on service on the reporting date of 5 April 2018 because Easter fell earlier than in 2017.The gender pay gap does not show differences in pay for comparable roles at specific grades, but is used as a broad measure of earnings across a whole organisation. According to the Office for National Statistics, the UK’s average gender pay gap is 17.9% for 2018.Sue Barnes, People Director at the RNLI, said:“We are absolutely committed to demonstrating equality for all our employees in recruitment, promotion, development opportunities and pay. At the RNLI, we value the many benefits diversity brings to our organisation.“We actively promote awareness on inclusion and diversity for our staff and volunteers to enhance their awareness and make practical changes to help create an inclusive and supportive environment at the RNLI.“We have a formal process of grading jobs at the RNLI to ensure rigorous decisions are made on job grades and rates of pay. Gender pay gap data is reviewed by our Remuneration Committee and actions to address gender pay gaps form part of our annual pay review cycle.“As we continue to monitor our gender pay gap levels, our data shows that our mean gender pay gap is returning closer to the 2017 reported level, with our figures from September 2018 – when employment for most seasonal lifeguards ends – showing a gender pay gap of 0.7%.”Any organisation in Great Britain that has 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap. The deadline for businesses and charities to publish their figures is 4 April each year.The RNLI’s full report can be viewed online.

Guards posted near the cell did not intervene although Boukhdir repeatedly shouted for help. Boukhdir was left for more than an hour with this reputedly dangerous man, who was put in Boukhdir’s cell in order to terrorise him.”The letter added: “It is your duty to ensure the safety of detainees. We would hold you responsible if anything at all were to happen to Boukhdir. It is furthermore unacceptable that he is being denied even minimal conditions of hygiene. Despite contracting scabies as a result of the lack of cleanliness in the prison, he still has not been allowed to use its communal showers.”The incident with the armed inmate came several days after the publication of a letter about conditions in the prison which Boukhdir dictated to his wife during one of her visits. “I have always known that I would end up in prison,” the letter began. “I knew the Tunisian regime would reserve this fate for me sooner or later.”Boukhdir was arrested during a police ID check as he was leaving Sfax to return to Tunis on 26 November 2007. A district court in Sakiet Ezzit, on the outskirts of Sfax, sentenced him to a year in prison on 4 December 2007 on charges of “insulting behaviour towards an official in the exercise of his duty,” “violating decency” and “refusing to produce identity papers.” Reporters Without Borders wrote to more than 20 foreign embassies in Tunis on 27 May asking them to show their support for Boukhdir by receiving his wife.

News Reporters Without Borders and the Guatemala Information Centre (CERIGUA) condemn journalist and media owner Luis Alberto Lemus Ruano’s murder in a pharmacy he owned Jalpatagua, in the southeastern department of Jutiapa, on 7 April.The two partner organizations urge the authorities to quickly establish the motive for Lemus’ murder, which came just three weeks after Jaime Napoleón Jarquín Duarte was murdered on 20 March in a nearby town in the same department. Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the resurgence in violence against journalists in Guatemala.Lemus was with one of his employees in the pharmacy when an unidentified gunman burst in, opened fire and then fled in a waiting vehicle driven by an accomplice. Lemus was rushed to a local hospital where he died soon afterwards.Vice-president of the Jutiapa Journalists Association (APJ) since 30 November, Lemus ran a local radio station, Radio Stereo Café, owned a local cable TV station, Café TV, and produced a news programme called “La Mochila” that was broadcast on both stations every Monday.As well as being a journalist and owning several shops and pharmacies, Lemus was involved in local politics. He was Jutiapa’s governor from 2008 to 2010 and had run three times for mayor of the nearby municipality of Moyuta without success.APJ president Misael Mayen said Lemus have never reported receiving any threats in connection with his journalistic activities. As his killer did not take anything, the police have ruled out robbery as a possible motive.

Read in Chinese / 看中文Twenty-three years ago, on 4 June 1989 at about 5 am, Chinese army tanks rolled into Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. Hundreds of demonstrators, possibly more than a thousand, were killed and thousands were shot and wounded.Economic liberalisation instigated by Deng Xiaoping in the 1980s did not produce lasting political liberalisation or lead to any relaxation of the Communist Party’s monopoly of power. Many brave citizens who tried to expose what took place during the massacre and demanded justice for the victims or called for convictions to be reconsidered, lost their jobs or remain in prison today. The father of one demonstrator, reduced to desperation after the victim’s families received no response to their repeated appeals to the authorities, hanged himself on 26 May. The Chinese state tolerates no criticism and has banned Chinese civil society from expressing itself freely. Human rights abuses occur daily, such as re-education through labour, arbitrary detention and torture of dissidents, psychiatric internment, crackdowns on dissidents from ethnic or religious minorities through imprisonment or execution, control of the Internet, harassment of lawyers who campaign for civil rights, house arrest with no legal basis. It should be noted that the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Liu Xiaobo, was sentenced to 11 years’ imprisonment.On 4 June in Paris, Hong Kong, London, New York, Frankfurt and major cities throughout the world, thousands of demonstrators will gather to express their anger and to ensure the date is not forgotten. They will be supporting demands for an end to the persecution of the most courageous figures in Chinese civil society, and of their families. These include Liu Xiaobo, Hu Jia, Gao Zhisheng as well as many others who are often overlooked. The demonstrators will also be demanding that protesters who went into exile more than 20 years ago be allowed to return, and will be calling for political reform and the establishment of a democratic constitution for China. A demonstration honouring the victims of the Tiananmen Square massacre will take place on 3 June between 6 pm and 8 pm at the Trocadéro Human Rights Plaza in Paris, organized by the Chinese pro-democracy movement and supported by Reporters Without Borders, the Human Rights League, China Solidarity, the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), Together Against the Death Penalty (ECPM), Act for Human Rights (ADH), Christian Action for the Abolition of Torture, Amnesty International, France-Tibet and the Tibetan People’s Support Committee.A press conference organized by the Liu Xiaobo Support Committee will be held on Monday 4 June at 10:30 am in the offices of Reporters Without Borders, 47 rue Vivienne, 75002 Paris. It will be opened by the dissident Zhang Jian, who was wounded by three bullets fired by troops during the massacre, and will be followed by a statement by members of the Liu Xiaobo Support Committee.
