Don’t Be Too Polite Girls, Don’t Be Too Polite: Kindergarten Teachers and Employment Contracts
AbstractKindergarten teachers have experienced significant changes in their employment contracts since 1992. In 1996 the New Zealand political environment of an upcoming MMP election combined with the issues of women, women’s work and the discourses relating to kindergarten teaching and teachers. The outcome of this combination was a regaining of some previously lost employment conditions, as well as improvements “against the odds”. This article discusses the historical struggle for employment conditions in the kindergarten service and the events of the 1996 employment negotiations.
