It doesn’t have to be like this (7/10)
Workers in Central Auckland will march to vote early when the polls open on Wednesday the 3rd of September. Unite Union and the SFWU are encouraging our members to vote to change the government.
The current National Government has tried to attack unions and workers entitlements, while most opposition parties have promised to increase the minimum wage by $2 an hour in their first year in government.
Workers will be meeting up outside SKYCITY and marching down to Liston House in Hobson Street to be the first workers to vote en masse. The march will be starting at 2pm from Skytower and Unite members will be released from work on paid time to attend. Other workers welcome to join us!

Andy Hall is preparing for a trial that could cost him $10 million and 7 years of his life. All because he spoke out about abusive working conditions at a factory in Thailand owned by Natural Fruit, a company that ships processed pineapple products around the world.
Don’t let Natural Fruit hide its misconduct with intimidation and harassment! Send a message demanding it drop these ridiculous charges and fix what’s wrong in its factories today!
