Pay Equity

NBNU supports the Coalition for Pay Equity in conjunction with the NB Federation of Labour and the NB Advisory Council on the Status of Women. We have been lobbying for decades asking that government pass legislation for Pay Equity in the Public and Private Sector.

What is Pay Equity?

Pay Equity is about the value of work traditionally and predominantly done by women. In addition, it means that jobs of equal or comparable value will have the same salary. Based on working conditions, skills, responsibility and effort, people in different jobs should receive the same salary when the work is of equivalent value.

The Coalition for Pay Equity is committed to having legislation passed for all workers in New Brunswick. Voluntary measures are not enough and we must continue lobbying the provincial government. NBNU is pleased to be a supporter of the Pay Equity Coalition and their efforts. Find out more
