First case for pay equity heads to mediation

From Morning Report, 8:45 am on 10 April 2017

The first workers to use the government's new pay equity mediation service to argue they deserve more money are having their case heard today. Our reporter Eric Frykberg is at the union that represents the three education support workers who are taking the case. Denise Tetzlaff, Kathy Power and Mary Jones spoke of being paid litle as $16 an hour after spending years in the job. our reporter says of the gathering of 50 to 80 people there to support them that "there's a strong sense of confidence here and determination to change that once and for all."
