Pay equity bill for the public sector

Today, May 29 2009, Mary Schryer, Minister responsible for the Status of Women, introduced the bill: Pay Equity Act, 2009. The act will cover the public service, health, education and Crown corporations. It respects the majority of principles recommended by the NB Coalition for Pay Equity. Before the bill becomes law, it needs to go through the 2nd and 3rd reading and to receive royal assent. It will come into force in April 2010.

For the Coalition's Chairperson, Huberte Gautreau, this is a first victory. The Coalition will continue to work and promote pay equity legislation for the private sector as well. Pay discrimination should be eliminated across New Brunswick.
