The Time for Pay Equity is Now! A Call for Action

Tuesday, July 27 2010

In December 2004, the Pay Equity Network sent out a joint Call for Action and Pay Equity Information Sheet (http://www.nawl.ca/lob-pay.htm). We called on your support to lobby the federal government to immediately implement the recommendations of the Pay Equity Task Force.

We have extended the deadline for signing on to our Call For Action to February 10, 2005.

This enables us to collect additional signatories and demonstrate broad-based solidarity among unions, feminist organizations, and other equality-seeking groups on this important issue. Those who have not done so please sign on and forward this to your networks.

We will release a complete list of signatories to our Call for Action at a press release on Parliament Hill and deliver it to key politicians on February 14th. The launch of our national campaign coincides with Valentine's Day and will play with the theme "Pay Equity, at the Heart of Equality".

Regional press conferences are also anticipated.

To sign up, send your organization's full name (including French please), contact person (with e-mail), and website address to Suzanne Bouclin at suzanne@nawl.ca. For additional information contact Andrée Côté, Director of Legislation and Law Reform for NAWL at (613) 241-7570 #25. (Please note that there has been some overlap with our other initiatives around pay equity, namely our letter to Prime Minister Martin and Premier Williams to pay up the $80 million that is owed to Newfoundland and Labrador women. This may have caused some confusion between our two campaigns, so please ensure that your name is below).

Our current signatories include:
