Urgent Food and Household Items Appeal has been launched amongst
Auckland Unions and our community friends for the
Talleys AFFCO Wiri Site union members and their families.

The Wiri Site members and their families urgently need donations of food and household items. They need packaged food (cereal, tins goods, school snacks) and household items (soap, washing power, toilet paper).

We are asking Unions to run collections within specific workplaces and community groups to encourage food donations at their events. A poster to help you coordinate the collection is attached.

The Wiri Site members have been undertaking solidarity strikes throughout the lockout. They were locked out over Easter and on ANZAC Day, and have been on strike since then. They have unpaid bills, and are finding it difficult to provide food for their families including school lunches. They are experiencing real hardship.

Donated food and household items can be dropped off to Meat Workers Union, 259 Great South Road, Greenlane. Call Jo Donovan, 09-520-0035, to arrange.
