In 2008, women earn 88% of the average hourly earnings of men. The jobs women do more likely to do are, on average, valued less than the jobs done predominantly by men and women are also less likely to be promoted. TEU is campaigning for all working women to have the same pay and employment opportunities as men.

The Pay Equity Challenge Coalition is a broad, apolitical coalition of community, employer, union, and academic groups, including the TEU, who are committed to putting pay equity issues back on the Government’s, and New Zealand’s, agenda. It challenges the government to tell us how it are going to work with employers and unions across both public and private sectors to reduce the pay gap.
