A 12,800 strong petition in support of equal pay for DHB Administration workers was received at Parliament today.

Labour MP Jan Tinetti accepted the petitions which were tabled in Parliament this afternoon. 

The petitions were delivered by PSA members, advocates and bargaining team members from across New Zealand. It calls for the gender pay gap to be closed and for pay increases that recognise the skill and expertise of DHB Admin workers alongside the historical undervaluation of that skill and expertise.

This marks another milestone in an ongoing equal pay campaign for DHB Administration workers, which has seen the PSA raise an equal pay claim on behalf of 7000 members in April last year on Administrators Appreciation Day.
