1. About this survey

Welcome to TSSA's Equal Pay survey for our members working in Eurostar.

The TSSA made an agreement as part of the 2013 Pay Award to undertake a full review of pay equality for the company pay grades A to F, since then the company have undertaken a review and have identified some equality pay issues however they have not shared any detailed information with the TSSA in order for us to do a joint analysis of the results.

We will meet with the company in September 2014 to discuss how they intend to deal with any pay anomolies, however the TSSA are seeking to identify any specific issues from our members via this survey.

The purpose of this survey is to provide us with the relevant information to enable us to evaluate if our members are being paid equally based on gender and whether we need to challenge the companies review that they undertook.

The Equal Pay Act 1970 (Now part of The Equality Act 2010) gives women (and men) a right to equal pay for equal work, and legal protection from victimisation for making a complaint (or giving evidence in another’s complaint) about equal pay.

This means that people should be paid the same regardless of their gender. You have a right not to be paid less than someone of the opposite sex doing:

1. the same work or similar work (legally known as 'like work')
2. different work that is of equal value to your employer (known as 'work of equal value')

This is a confidential survey and you will be asked information about your pay, so please give us as much information as you can, so that we can establish if there are any patterns of unequal pay.

Many thanks for your time.
