In centres, community halls and public squares all over Australia today, early childhood educators will gather today with a simple and long-overdue ask – don’t ignore what we do for this country. Not for one more day.
Australia’s early childhood educators, including those working in community and private childcare centres, will walk off the job on March 27 to demand better pay. Some centres will be closed for the whole day and parents will be asked to keep their children at home.
Early childhood educator’s union United Voice have escalated their campaign for professional wages, announcing that educators around Australia will walk off the job on March 27.
