Stand up for pay equity

Green MP Catherine Delahunty is running an e-card campaign to support public sector pay equity after National announced it would be cancelling pay equity reviews and sacking the team responsible for them.

It’s a stark reminder that nothing has really changed since National dumped pay equity legislation immediately after taking office in 1990.

You can add your name to the Greens’ campaign here.

Hat tip: No Right Turn.

  1. Evidence-Based Practice 1

    The pay equity work affected was being done in the Dept of Labour’s Pay and Equity Employment Unit. Now disestablished by this govt.
    So unjust and frustrating that the many reviews under way will now be stopped. More going backwards. And the Minister is a woman. Talk about climbing the ladder and pulling it up after you.
