International Working Women’s Day.
Feb. 28, 2023
Hau Taki Haere | Tertiary Update Vol 27, No 3
Wednesday 8 March is International Working Women’s Day – a day to celebrate and reflect on the progress we have made towards gender equity and the work that still remains.
2023 is a year of progress for Te Hautū Kahurangi | Tertiary Education Union as we head towards some big milestones in our two separate multi-employer and multi-union claims under the Equal Pay Act 1972 for low paid library, clerical, and administration workers in the university sector.
To mark International Working Women’s Day, and to raise the profile of our Pay Equity mahi, we will be active and visible on university campuses up and down Aotearoa, talking to students, non-members, and the public about why pay equity matters.
To join us in this mahi, please contact your local TEU organiser.
Our women’s network across Te Pūkenga will be marking the day too with a range of small actions from celebratory emails, morning teas or IWWD seminars. Keep an eye out for what is happening at your branch.
