A message from the Council of Trade Unions:
Would it be fair if $10 was only worth $8.80 to you just because you’re a woman? Well it might be, because on average women in NZ earn 12% less than men.There's a Facebook group too with lots of info.
But this Government seems not to care about that because it has scrapped its own pay equity unit. It is more than 30 years since equal pay legislation was introduced in NZ. Equality won’t happen all by itself.
Join the Pay Equity Challenge and demand equal pay for women NOW! Show the Government you want action not words by coming to the:
WELLINGTON PAY EQUITY RALLY – 12.30pm, Tuesday 30 June
Parliament grounds, Wellington
AUCKLAND PAY EQUITY RALLY - Midday, Tuesday 30 June
Corner Victoria and Queen Streets, Auckland
HAMILTON PAY EQUITY RALLY - Midday, Tuesday 30 June
Wintec Campus, Student Centre Hub, Hamilton CBD
Thanks to the multitude of people who have sent this to me. I'm going to be at the Auckland event, hope to see some of you there!
