The Exchange is the location of a number of significant events in Union history. First, one of the first Unions, the Tailoresses’ Union, was started here in 1889 to fight sweat shops. Also, it is the place where the IRD/Jean Parker pay equity case was won in 1956.
For these reasons, the Dunedin Pay Equity Action Group has chosen this place to hold a Tea Party to highlight pay equity issues.
Please come along and join us. If you want, you can dress as a woman that inspires you and/or wear the Suffragette colours of green, purple and white.
