Pay Equity Petition

Sue Moroney, Labour's spokesperson on Women's Affairs, has launched a petition on pay equity, as follows:
To the House of Representatives
We, the undersigned, request that the House of Representatives call on the National
Government to:
• reverse its decision to scrap pay equity investigations for school support staff and
social workers,
• implement the findings of previously completed pay and employment equity
• develop a strategy to eliminate the gender pay gap in New Zealand.
At this stage the petition isn't available online, but once it is up I'll happily link it.

In the meantime you can email me (julie dot fairey at gmail dot com) and I'll send you back a copy of the PDF, which has a very nifty Kate Sheppard watermark. Please be patient with me as I'm going to be away from the computer a fair bit this week.

Nice to see the collective activity is continuing on this issue!
