    Stop the BNT Rip-Off!

    The chief executive of the Australian company that owns Brake and Transmissions (BNT) recently described Kiwi workers as a ‘pimple on a pumpkin’ when questioned about workers protesting the low wages the company pay in New Zealand.1

    These low-paid workers are seeking a wage increase after months of negotiations. Despite being amongst the lowest paid in their industry, BNT is refusing to deal with them fairly.

    Support BNT workers and sign the open letter to the New Zealand manager Martin Storey telling him to get back to the table and negotiate a wage that workers can live off.

    To Martin Storey:

    The people who work at your New Zealand stores just want a fair go.

    As your customers, and potential customers, we’re asking you to do the right thing by these Kiwis and their families, get back to the negotiating table, and offer them a wage they can live on.

    It’s the right thing to do for these workers and for your business.

    Yours,

    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
