Over 100 meat workers have now been locked out for 10 days at the Canterbury Meat Packers works in Rangitikei. These workers are being told to sign an agreement that cuts their pay by 20-30% and loses important conditions in order to return to work. Some migrant workers face deportation if they lose their jobs. It’s a disgrace; they need support.
Workers have set up a picket on State Highway One, are leafleting local communities CMP Flyer for worksites, and the union is organising financial support like grocery vouchers and other essentials.
They are not highly paid and need financial support- you can donate via the KiwiBank lockout fund. Name is Disputes Fund. Account number is 38-9007-0894028-08.
