Women earn on average


10% less than men


in Tui Retail (4,585 staff in 620 shops)


Women receive bonuses that are


23%


lower than men in Tui Retail


Tui vows to tackle gender pay gap in shops and air


Juliet Dennis juliet.dennis@travelweekly.co.uk


Tui is to review its recruitment processes to ensure more women reach senior roles after revealing one of the biggest pay gaps of any major UK company to date.


Women earn 57% less in hourly


pay at Tui Airways UK and 10% less in Tui Retail, where 93% of staff are women. Bonuses paid to female shop


staff are also 23% lower than those paid to male employees. The gender pay gap refers to the


difference between what men and women earn regardless of their roles rather than men and women in the same role. Tui said its pay gap in retail was


because few men work in its stores and most are full-time – hence their pay is higher. Across the business as a whole, 60% of staff are part-time. Tui Retail has 4,585 employees


across 620 stores. At Tui Airways UK, 95% of its 870 pilots are men and 79% of its 2,500 cabin crew are women. The average salaries are £111,683 for a Tui pilot and £26,272 for cabin crew. Tui is one of the first companies


in travel to file its Gender Pay Gap Report (see box). The company has this week pledged to ensure there is no bias in style, tone or language in staff recruitment, and hiring managers will be trained accordingly. “This will not only help us


address any gender bias in recruitment, but any other

bias that impacts diversity and inclusion in the broadest sense,” a spokeswoman said. The company said it would not use positive discrimination to recruit more women and had no specific targets for female staff. Instead, it would make sure short lists for new recruits were “balanced” in terms of gender. “We aim to reduce occupational


segregation and encourage a more even gender split across the organisation,” said the spokeswoman. “We feel the gender pay gap in the UK is a systemic social issue that will take a long time to change.” According to C&M Travel


Recruitment, the average pay of travel consultants in the industry in 2017 was £18,033 for men and £17,900 for women.

Tui’s Gender Pay Gap Report 2016-17


The pay gap increases in more


senior roles: male retail managers received on average £30,500 and women £27,660. C&M director Barbara


Kolosinska said: “The industry should absolutely be doing more to close the gender pay gap. “By reviewing their recruitment


process and introducing policies to eliminate hiring bias, Tui can hopefully inspire other companies to follow in their path.” The Association of Women


Travel Executives said it hoped Tui would lead the way on gender pay. But a spokeswoman added:


“They say significant change will take time – why? It will be a watershed moment when we have a better understanding of the lie of the land across the whole industry [in terms of pay].”
