Fair Pay Agreement for ECE

Fair Pay Agreements for ECE

The Fair Pay Agreements legislation has now passed into law and the early childhood education sector is set to be among the first to negotiate a Fair Pay Agreement (FPA).

We are doing all we can to support the Bill and secure a FPA for the sector as soon as possible. To have your say on minimum standards for the sector, join the union today!

Steps to a Fair Pay Agreement

  1. We need to gather 1000 signatures to initiate bargaining for a Fair Pay Agreement.
  2. NZEI Te Riu Roa, the union for ECE, will enter negotiations with representatives from ECE employers.
  3. All ECE kaimahi will need to vote on a proposed agreement.
