Because of our gender pay imbalance, the 14th of November is the day in 2017 most women in New Zealand effectively start working for free.
Our new coalition Government have said they will change that.
Let’s show the Government we support them to deliver better equal pay law by 14 November 2018 - so we can celebrate that day as a milestone for equal pay.2,272 signatures
Dear Iain, Tracey, and Julie Anne
I’ll remember the 14th of November 2017 as the day of the year on which most women in New Zealand effectively start working for free. So I am joining the countdown to the 14th of November 2018, when we’ll celebrate having an equal pay law that does what it says it’s going to do- puts the agreed equal pay principles into the 1972 Equal Pay Act and makes it faster and easier for women to get paid fairly for their work.
Between now and then, I’ll do everything I can to support you to work together to get that law through Parliament. You can count on me. And on the 14th of November 2018, I’ll be in touch so we can look back at what we’ve achieved to reset the gender pay imbalance in New Zealand.
For over 80 years, Cadbury has been a part of Dunedin's culture. More than 400 people work there and that helps their families and their communities, and dozens of Dunedin businesses.
And it's good for Cadbury too - they're doing well out of it.
But Cadbury’s parent company, Mondelez International, wants to make more by shifting this factory out of New Zealand. They get a bit more money but everyone else loses a lot.
For Mondelez this is about profit. Plain and simple. But they need people like us to make that profit. And if enough of us tell their Director of Manufacturing ANZ Jason Bonisoli that leaving Dunedin is a deal-breaker, they'll have to listen.
Let’s show them that all Kiwis stand together with Cadbury workers. Sign the open letter.11,084 signatures
To Jason Bonisoli,
The Cadbury Factory in Dunedin is a profitable business and a vital part of our local economy. For every job lost, dozens more people are affected. The closure of the plant will be a devastating blow to the local community and economy.
You rely on customers like us to keep your profit up, and abandoning Dunedin is a deal-breaker for us and for all New Zealanders.
We, the undersigned, ask you to reverse your decision and keep Cadbury's Dunedin factory open. It's good business and it's the right thing to do.
