Sweden -National mediation institute to prioritise equal pay -July 18, 2012

National media report that a parliamentary majority exists to broaden the mandate of the National Mediation Institute to close the gender pay gap. The mediation institute is traditionally responsible to coordinate wage growth across sectors, taking the export sector wages as a base line to ensure an equitable development in other sectors. The institute is now expected to receive a further mandate to measure and track wage differences between female and male dominated sectors, and to take action to correct it.
