On 1st September - National Equal Pay Day - Unions NSW launched research findings about the gender pay gap. The research on the gender pay gap among full-time and part-time employees was conducted by Professor Alison Preston (Curtin University), Serena Yu and Sally Wright (both researchers from the Workplace Research Centre). Data from Wave 4 of the Australia at Work study, being run by the Workplace Research Centre, was used for the analysis. The Australia at Work study, a five-year longitudinal study of over 8,000 workers, is an ARC linkage project with UnionsNSW as the linkage partner.
