"The Struggle for Pay Equity on the Ground.".

Haiven, Judy. "The Struggle for Pay Equity on the Ground." Canadian Woman Studies/les cahiers de la femme. Special Issue: Benefiting Women? Women's Labour Rights, vol. 23, nos. 3/4 (Spring/Summer 2004), pp. 89-95.

This article focusses on the case of the Saskatoon Catholic School Board and their efforts to implement pay equity. Without legislation in place first, even a progressive employer's efforts are often in jeopardy. Although the union initially agreed with management, disagreements arose in the union over gendered differences between support-staff and caretakers and the pay equity talks fell apart. The author discusses what can be learned from this case mostly the need for education, more representation and that unions must address policy and practice simultaneously.
