The Coalition

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

– Margaret Mead

 

The New Brunswick Coalition for Pay Equity is a community of individuals and organizations who believe in a fairer and more equitable world; one that recognizes the value of the work of all workers in female-dominated jobs. 

Our mission? To promote and advocate for the adoption and the implementation of adequate legislation in order to achieve pay equity for all workers in both the public and private sectors. 

Our priorities for 2020? 

Goal 1. Achieving pay equity in the public and private sectors

  • Private Sector: We advocate for pay equity legislation for the private sector by working with, and urging all political parties, to adopt a law NOW.
  • Public Sector: We monitor the implementation of the Pay Equity Act, 2009 and advocate for the extension of the law as well as the adoption of maintenance regulation.
  • Childcare and Community Caregiving Sector: We promote and advocate for pay equity, better working conditions, and public investments to reach pay equity wages in the sector.

  • At the federal level: We take part in national efforts for the federal law on pay equity to be implemented as soon as possible.

Goal 2. Raise awareness among New Brunswickers and increase their engagement

  • We continue to raise the awareness of the population about the importance of pay equity. 
  • We foster the participation of the public and of organizations in promotion and advocating for pay equity.
