This year for Annual Conference, the theme is Whakamana Tāngata. As an outcome of this conference, we want every member in NZEI Te Riu Roa to know they have a place in the union. For their knowledge, expertise, background, contribution, and diversity to be valued and respected. The people who attend annual conference have a role to enable this to happen.

Want to help fix the pay gap in ECE?

As early childhood teachers, we do an incredibly important job.

But there is a crisis in early childhood education. The government is leaving early childhood behind and that’s not okay. They need to act urgently to fix the gap.

Our voice will be stronger if we all join together, so have your say!
