Mana Taurite | Mana Wāhine | Pay Equity

  • Mana Taurite

As educators, you play a vital role in the lives of tamariki and communities in Aotearoa. Campaigning for pay equity is an historic opportunity to ensure that educators are valued for the work you do. The work of an educator is highly skilled, however, the pay and conditions don’t always reflect the levels of complexity and creativity within the various education roles. The pay equity process is about addressing the historic and current undervaluation in both pay and status in roles that society has traditionally perceived to be ‘women’s work’. The process determines if there has been an undervaluation and if so, this is corrected. Mana taurite means restoring balance to the imbalance. Pay equity means that your work is seen and properly valued. Let’s come together, champion the work of educators and win the best pay equity settlements that we can.
