What is ‘We’re relying on you?'

We’re relying on you was a campaign to ask all our women MPs to pledge to ‘pay the job not the gender’. We're relying on them to sign the pledge because a woman’s pay affects everyone who relies on her, inside and outside of work.

"I believe a person should be paid based on their skill, responsibility, effort and conditions of work. I support pay based on the job, not the gender, and will not ever support gender-based discrimination of pay."

All women MPs should understand that women's work is just as important and valuable as men's. If every woman in parliament signed the pledge, we could rely on parliament to uphold paying work fairly, no matter who's doing the job. The pledge was also open to male MPs who wanted to stand up for equality.

 

So far, 45 MPs across 6 political parties have signed the pledge, showing that some things are bigger than politics! We hope we can rely on these MPs to work together to finally end gender-discrimination of pay in New Zealand, 40 long years after our law made it illegal.

I’m an MP you can rely on, and I meant to sign!

We’ll get it sorted. Just email us on government.relations@equalpay.org.nz from your parliamentary email address and we’ll get in touch with your office shortly to confirm.
