Fonterra urged by Union to rebuild Takaka Factory

Fonterra urged by Union to rebuild Takaka Factory

Today 70 delegates at the NZ Dairy Workers Union Congress passed a resolution urging Fonterra to rebuild their factory at Takaka in the interests of the workers and the community they live in.

"We are aware that Fonterra is a global community but it must remember the communities that foster and nourish the Company and how important it is to places like Golden Bay where it is the major industry," said NZDWU National Secretary James Ritchie.

"Fonterra's CEO Andrew Ferrier will be addressing our Congress this afternoon and we will be asking him to pass on to the Board our message that we hope they will rebuild the Takaka Factory"

This is in the interests of our 70 members, the 100 staff in total at the Factory whose families' livelihoods are dependent on their income. The Dairy Workers Union will be working with farmers, other community people and Local Government to do what we can to influence Fonterra's decision" he concluded.
