Pay Equity for Librarians and Librarian Assistants

Gender based undervaluation has been established and bargaining for the claim will begin soon!

Where we're at - Term 4 2022

The Pay Equity claim for librarians and librarian assistants was raised by NZEI Te Riu Roa in November 2020. Investigation of the claim began in October 2021 and was completed in September of this year.  Through this process, a gender neutral assessment of claimants and comparators was undertaken.

The results of this investigation showed that school librarians have been subject to gender based undervaluation and the claim will now proceed to bargaining.


What happens next?

Now that the validity of the claim has been established, NZEI Te Riu Roa members have formed a negotiation team who underwent training in early November 2022.

Bargaining will take place from 28 November - 2 December 2022. Make sure you sign up to the mailing list or update your details to ensure you get the latest updates from bargaining as they happen.
