    I'm Voting For Community and Public Services

    It’s the people who work in public and community services that help make our communities the great places they are.

    They’re DOC rangers, librarians and pool lifeguards. They mend holes in the road, keep our hospitals running or support vulnerable people to live in their own homes.

    To keep our communities thriving, all these services need to be properly resourced. But funding cuts, staffing caps and endless restructures have put them at risk.

    Together let’s use our vote in 2017 to support them.

    I value New Zealand communities, and I value the people and services that make them strong. So I will only give my vote to a party which values public and community services.

    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.

    Keep it Public!

    Public tertiary education gives all New Zealanders the opportunity to develop skills, learn trades, and create knowledge which helps our families, communities and economy.

    But Paul Goldsmith, the Minister for Tertiary Education, is trying to change the law to take public funds away from our universities, polytechs and wānanga and hand them to private companies who are more concerned with profit than providing quality education.

    Together, let’s make sure tertiary education stays public, local and focused on learning.

    This would be the single biggest change to tertiary education funding in a generation. If enough of us speak out, then together we can stop it happening.

    By pledging to support public tertiary education you will be adding your voice to the many others that want to keep tertiary education public, local, and focused on learning, not profit.

    Tertiary education belongs to all of us. Now is the time to tell Paul Goldsmith you want it to stay that way.

    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 if they decide to change the company who provides the bus service, then bus drivers are protected and have security.
