|Reaffirmed:||1990 (Res 200.20.16)/1992 (Res 200.20.18)|
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Business and Professional Women's Clubs of Ontario reaffirm to the Government of Ontario disappointment at the Government's failure to enact legislation requiring Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value according to a composite of skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions; and ensuring that the only exemptions to such equal remuneration be those of a seniority system, a formal system of performance appraisal, or "red-circling" in special circumstances.
FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Business and Professional Women's Clubs of Ontario once again urge the Government of Ontario to initiate changes with respect to Equal Pay Legislation to;
1) provide for comprehensive definition of "same establishment" to include all units of an organization in the same geographical area; and
2) require that, in the appeal procedure, employees have the same right as employers to appeal to an independent referee.
FURTHER BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Business and Professional Women's Clubs of Ontario urge the Government, in enacting legislation regarding Equal pay for Work of Equal Value
1) to provide an implementation plan for ending the existing discrimination -first in the public sector, and with all deliberate sped in the private sector; and
2) to make guidelines regarding such legislation widely available throughout the Province.
