SSPA is a sector leader on pay equity. In August 2019, two separate pay equity claims were lodged by the PSA, one relating to people in social work roles, and the other for a broader range of social service workers. SSPA has successfully provided coordination to the employers and wider sector for the social work claim, and we are now acting as a sector coordinator and representative in the social service workers claim.
