Working Women's Charter 2009

Working Women’s Charter 2009

Wednesday 27 May 2009, 8.30 am to 5pm

AUT Conference Centre (WA224),
Auckland University of Technology, City Campus,
55 Wellesley Street East, Auckland.

For a celebration, a history and action plan.

It is now 30 years since the Working Women’s Charter was adopted by the Federation of Labour Conference as policy. It had an immediate effect on conditions of work for women and on women’s participation in unions.

Join the Auckland Labour History Group on Wednesday 27 May at a seminar which will:

Establish an historical record of the Working Women’s Charter 1980s campaign

Celebrate that achievement

Take unfinished business from the Charter forward into the economic challenges we are facing. Globally, women are likely to be hard hit by the changes.

Anyone is welcome to attend. We are hoping that it will also be a union occasion so that any action plan can be taken forward into the whole union movement.

Registration: $50.00 (Waged), $25.00 (unwaged), $25.00 each (Groups of three or more)
