The union movement’s digital campaign arm – Together – has sent out the following email asking for support to put Peter Dunne on the spot with his electorate over Easter Trading:
It’s official – the Government’s planned law-change to make more people work on Easter Sunday, is in trouble.
Last November the Government had 75 MPs supporting this change – now it’s down to only 62. All it’ll take now is for Peter Dunne and Te Ururoa Flavell to back working people, and the law won’t go through.
We think the tide has turned – people want to choose family over more shopping and neither Dunne or Flavell have made any guarantee to support the Government on this law.
Thousands of people have signed the open letter to stop this law. Now to bring the point home, we want to deliver thousands of flyers to voters in Peter Dunne’s electorate, explaining the democratic choice he’s got to preserve Easter Sunday for the families of people who work in retail – or not.
The final vote on this law is in just a few weeks. We need to make sure that the people who Peter Dunne is paid to represent know about the choice he’s making – it’s about transparent democracy. Please chip in to help.
Thank you for your support,
Together Campaigns Team
