    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.

    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.

    Equal Pay

    123 years since women got the vote, the Government has finally agreed to adopt equal pay principles. That's step one down, now there's two more to go.

    We're sending a message to Parliament to support equal pay.

    Will you add your name to it?

    To the Female MPs of New Zealand

    On the 19th of  September you received a white flower in celebration of Suffrage Day. 123 years on from the enfranchisement of women in Aotearoa, it's time to really tackle the suffrage movement's next big issue - Equal Pay.

    And doing that is easy as 1, 2, 3:

    1. Implement the agreed Equal Pay Principles
    2. Settle the equal pay claim brought by Kristine Bartlett on behalf of all caregivers
    3. Allocate funding so that equal pay claims can be settled.

    I want you to know I'm right beside you taking those next steps.

    Yours sincerely
