Equal Pay Campaign Launched with National Test Case

The Equal Pay Alliance has made 2010 the year for real action on the pay gap for working women. The Equal Pay Alliance is made up of 150 representatives from government, unions (including the Australian Council of Trade Unions) and businesses.

And I am delighted to pass on that the campaign has kicked off with the Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Elizabeth Broderick announcing that the Australian Services Union is aiming to increase the wages of almost 250,000 mostly female workers in the community sector. The ASU claims that low wages in the community sector should be raised to a comparable rate to similar industries that aren’t made up of mainly female workers.
