ECE employers - pay equity is for you!
Both teaching and support staff roles in early childhood education are underpaid because they are mostly done by women. We’re following in the footsteps of Kristine Bartlett and the aged care and seeking government funding for a pay equity settlement to deliver fair pay in early childhood education.
Four employer groups have already signed up to pay equity processes in their collective agreement negotiations (ECECA, Barnardos, Salvation Army and kindergarten support staff), and a fifth employer, Childspace, is leading involvement in a process the whole sector can participate in.

Yes! Government funded pay equity will make a real difference for our staff and tamariki.
