Stood up, fought back

The National Distribution Union‘s put a together a bit of a clip showing some of the struggles its members have been through over the past year. And what a year it’s been. Faced with a month-long supermarket lockout, an attempt by National to strip them of their work rights, the collapse of Feltex and two private members’ bills that would have effectively forced them to work over Easter, these workers stood up, fought back, and by the looks of it had a bit of fun in the process.

Anyway, it’s worth a look. I just hope y’all like Katchafire…

    And to think Mapp’s bill is still national party policy. What a disgrace.
