NCWNZ National President: Tuesday 4 February 2014

MEDIA RELEASE 

Equal pay for work of equal value – Pay Equity Court of Appeal Challenge

NCWNZ congratulates the Service and Food Workers’ Union (SFWU) for bringing to the Court of Appeal the case of Kristine Barlett vs. Terra Nova and wishes them well for success in this landmark case.

Barbara Arnold, National President explained that NCWNZ has been making submissions constantly to governments since 1897 on the issue of equal pay for work of equal value, and continues to be concerned about the lack of negotiation available to women in low paid industries, especially the care giving sector.

The outcome of this case will hopefully establish a just precedent in the complex issue of pay equity, she said.
