Where we're at - term 4 2022
On Tuesday 18 October, school administrators across the motu will receive their first payment at the new pay equity rates. This will include back payment from 20 August 2021 to 30 September 2022!

“We’re all working so hard to make sure schools are safe for our communities.”
Pam Watson, Auckland Secondary School
“Pay equity is our best chance to make significant progress toward fair pay for the work we do. There has been increasing pressure on administrators in schools to keep things running smoothly in spite of COVID.”
“We do what we do because we love our jobs and want to make a difference for our staff, students and our communities, all that we ask in return is to be paid fairly for the work we do.”
Jenny Crump, North Canterbury Area School
“Our pay equity process has given us clear evidence that administrators in schools are underpaid and these last two years has certainly highlighted this even more with the extra work we have had to do.”
