Local 871 – Gender Pay Equity Campaign

 

Dear All:

 

I am writing to let you know that our Gender Pay Equity campaign was launched today and that the LA Times had an article about our issue in the Business Section.

 

In case you missed the story, here it is:

Our Reel Equity webpage has been set up where you can find a copy of the complete Study, a summary, a Pay Equity toolkit, and a social media toolkit.

If you would like to support our campaign, please share these sites with your members, and ask them to sign on to our Open letter which they can find here:

To follow our campaign on facebook, twitter or Instagram, look for our handle @ReelEquity.

 

We know that the issues faced by our members are also shared by women in other crafts that are predominantly female, and hope that our campaign will help to launch an effort on behalf of us all.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to discuss this campaign with us.

 

 

In Solidarity,

 

Leslie Simon
