Word is numbers at the protest are up to 500. Not bad for a protest organised in a couple of days.
According to the Herald an EPMU flag-waving Sue Bradford and forty protesters broke through security.
The changes have been officially announced. As well as the 90 day fire at will extension and cutting workers’ access to union representation they’re changing the rules around leave. The result will be a reduction of leave entitlements for many workers.
The provision to sell the fourth week’s leave has also been announced. This is supposed to be by agreement but I can’t see how anyone employed under fire at will would be able to say no.
