Next Monday 1,000 workers at Talley’s owned AFFCO will take strike action. After 18 months of trying to drive down their terms and conditions, Talley’s are the first company to take advantage of the government’s new employment laws to walk away from bargaining.
This is an important issue for every working Kiwi. Bad employers like Talley’s lead the race to the bottom for everyone.
Please support these workers by donating to their Givealittle strike fund.
You can follow the campaign for a fair deal for meatworkers at the Jobs That Count website.
Losing two day’s pay isn’t an easy choice for any worker, especially workers with families. That’s what Talley’s is counting on. Help prove them wrong.
