Tell the Prime Minister to respect the independent umpire!
I support the professional work of childcare educators. They educate and care for our youngest children and give confidence to families while they are at work.
The Big Steps Case is about determining the appropriate rate of pay for childcare educators – so they can continue doing the jobs they love, and so our children are educated and cared for by people they know.
Your government has repeatedly recognised the low pay of childcare educators.
You’ve said we all should let the independent umpire decide the pay rate – the Fair Work Commission.
Now we call on you to do the same.
