Event are Miserables- Justice for the Highland Park cinema workers- Rally this Thursday at 5pm

4 Feb

Event Cinemas have laid off Highland park workers, many with long service of 8, 12 and 16 years length, and paid them only 2 weeks pay. Workers in Aotearoa have no basic rights to redundancy protected by law, as most other workers do in developed countries. How they have been treated could happen to us all, and in these times of recession and cutbacks, it is unjust that a company that can spend millions on Digital and 3D Projection technology can not do the right thing by workers who have given them a huge part of their working lives.

Join the brave women and men of Highland Park on Thursday 7th February at 5pm, for a mass picket at Event Cinemas in Queen Street. Invite your workmates and friends, bring your union, community and party banners. It is about time that workers in New Zealand had basic rights, and that the Multinational Corporations who profit and siphon the wealth out of here paid the rent.

Time for a minimum four weeks redundancy, and 2 weeks for every additional year worked as recognition for length of service.

An injury to one is an injury to all.
