Equal Pay Alliance          

The Equal Pay Alliance represents Australian employer and employee organisations, including business, union and community groups who have joined together to pursue practical action to ensure women’s work is properly valued and that decades of inequity are brought to an end.

Recently, the barriers holding women back from earning, saving and being valued fairly at work have been examined by several government reviews and parliamentary inquiries.

The Equal Pay Alliance is campaigning for the following:

  • Flexible work arrangements that don’t trade off wages and conditions for women and men with caring responsibilities
  • Improved quality, accessible and affordable childcare including out of school hours care
  • Improved equal employment opportunity practices in workplaces
  • Meaningful reporting by employers of equal pay and employment opportunities
  • A greater role for government agencies in promoting and implementing equal pay and employment opportunity programs in workplaces
  • Proper valuation and funding of wages and conditions for work traditionally carried out by women
  • More opportunities to build skills and participate in the workforce
  • Addressing the superannuation gap between men and women
