NBUPPE makes donation to Pay Equity Coalition

Pay Equity...it starts with you! campaign by the Coalition for Pay Equity in New Brunswick continues its important work.

Fredericton (19 Dec. 2012) — The issue of pay equity is still being fought in many workplaces across the country. To continue with the important work to ensure that workers receive equal pay for work of equal value, the Coalition for Pay Equity in New Brunswick is receiving an influx in important funding this year for its campaign, Pay Equity...it starts with you!

On behalf of members of the New Brunswick Union of Public and Private Employees (NBUPPE/NUPGE), President Susie Proulx-Daigle made a donation of $8,457 ($1 per member) to Johanne Perron of the Coalition for Pay Equity.

“Our public sector members will have an equal salary for work of equal value, thanks to the law on pay equity passed in 2009, mainly because of the work of the Coalition,” says Ms. Proulx-Daigle.

The public is being encouraged to contribute to the campaign to ensure the inequality in workplaces is rectified. Donations can be made here.
