Aotearoa New Zealand is in a phase of rapid changes in pay equity in the health sector. After many years of commitment to better pay and conditions in the aged care sector, unions (including NZNO) have secured a major change in the law in 2017 in the form of the wage and wage payment payment agreement. The agreement led to a seismic shift in pay rates and recognition of the training of caregivers and auxiliaries. In addition, at the end of 2017, laws that would promote pay equity in other historically female occupations were introduced in Parliament in the form of the Equal Pay and Pay Equity Act. With a change of government, the bill did not come into law, but new legislation is being drafted. Important collective agreements are available below as MDPs. If your collective agreement is not mentioned here and you would like a copy, please contact our Assistance Centre on 0800 28 38 48 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
