Government’s Equal Pay Announcement a Welcome Relief for Women
The news that the Government have reached an historic pay equity settlement is great news for women says the New Zealand Federation of Business & Professional Women (BPW NZ)
“Today’s announcement by the Government that they plan to make good on their promise of equal pay is a welcome relief for those of us who have campaigned for many years,” says President Vicky Mee.
“As an organisation we have been campaigning for the empowerment of women in the New Zealand workplace since the 1940’s, so for us, today’s announcement is a big deal.
“BPW NZ is looking forward to seeing the detail of how the Government plans to ensure that all women receive equal pay for work of equal value.
“In the meantime, on behalf of all working women, BPW NZ is revelling in today’s good news,” says Ms Mee.
