    A Working People's Charter for Fair Pay

    Our Government has tasked a new group to look at how we could set fair minimum pay and other terms and conditions for people working in specific industries or job categories - or Fair Pay Agreements.

    For too long now, we’ve seen New Zealanders in full time work and families on on double incomes struggling to get by. We can reverse the decline of the last 30 years. We can draw a line in the sand about what a fair deal is for working people. 

    We need a new set of rules about how work will be organised and Fair Pay Agreements give us that chance.

    To the Fair Pay Agreement Working Group:

    Getting Fair Pay right will mean working people and their families are better off, a better competitive environment for businesses who want to invest and innovate, and a larger share of New Zealand’s wealth flowing back into our communities.

    We need Fair Pay Agreements that:

    ● Cover all working people in an industry so that no business can make low wages and low investment a competitive advantage.

    ● Encourage skills training, and workforce investment so that we can do better as working people and as a nation.

    ● Rein the cowboys and fly-by-night operators who exploit working people and undermine good employment, harming good business and our regional economies.

    ● Get fair pay and a fair deal back to the working people who hold up our industries so they can have stable, happy and healthy lives again.

    You have the opportunity to make an enormous positive difference to New Zealanders and to our economy. Please make the most of this opportunity to build better lives for all of us.

    Sincerely,

    It’s time to pay the sisters the same as the misters!

    Equal pay affects everyone: the recent uni grad just starting her first job, the mum who is taking a couple of years out of paid work to raise her children, to school support and social workers.

    Treat Her Right is about all of us. We still need your voice, and as many voices as possible, so we make 2017 the year that equal pay became real.

    Will you join with us to make this happen?

    - I support equal pay in every workplace.

    - I want equal pay for women now.

    Women work hard for the money, so let’s treat them right.

    Thank You Driver

    On a bus anywhere in the Wellington region, you hear it all the time - “thank you, driver” - as passengers get off at their stop. We say it because we appreciate our bus service - a good bus network and great drivers make a huge contribution to the life of our cities.

    But, for something that is so important, we’re treating the people who drive us poorly.

    Greater Wellington Regional Council has ditched the current bus companies from many of the region’s routes. The drivers on those routes are about to lose their jobs - they have no idea if they will get work with the new contractors. Even if they do, they may be forced to work for less money or under worse conditions.

    So, let’s show the Regional Council that - unlike them - we appreciate our bus drivers. Please sign and say thank you driver!

    I value the contribution that bus drivers make to the bus network in the Wellington region.

    Wellington’s bus drivers should not have their jobs taken from them or get paid less to do the same work when the Wellington Regional Council makes a decision to change the bus contracting company.

    I want Greater Wellington Regional Council to provide job security for Wellington’s current bus drivers.

    And I want the Greater Wellington Regional Council to show they value bus drivers too, and make sure that bus drivers are protected and have security.
