Unite to picket Wendy's Dominion Rd despite injunction

Unite to picket Wendy's Dominion Rd, Auckland store 5pm tonight despite injunction

Wendy's was given an interim injunction by the Employment Court yesterday against Unite Union to stop picketers trespassing on the company's land.

The union has disputed whether the employment court had the jurisdiction to issue such injunctions in the circumstances.

The union has also been sent maps by the company that appears to claim a right to exclude pickets from common areas including areas not owned or occupied by Wendy’s.

We do not accept this but will comply with until the full hearing of the court.

Unite National Director Mike Treen says "it is important for all supporters of workers in low-paid industries like fast food to respect these ongoing strikes and pickets by Wendy's workers."

Supporters are being asked to come along and show that support outside the company's Dominion Rd, Auckland, store tonight from 5-7pm.
