PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix task force studying the issue of whether female city employees are receiving equal pay will share its findings.

The Phoenix Equal Pay Work Group will announce its recommendations to enhance equal pay efforts at a Phoenix City Council meeting Tuesday afternoon.

In April 2014, Mayor Greg Stanton requested Councilwoman Kate Gallego oversee a group to explore the issue.

The group plans to recommend more recruitment of women for non-traditional jobs and positions that earn greater compensation such as police officers and firefighters.

The panel will also urge optional training for city contractors and employees on certain skills such as salary negotiations.
