Strike three Monday for IDEA Services workers

Strike three Monday for IDEA Services workers

IDEA Services support and administration workers will be striking for a third time on Monday, 20 May, between 3.30pm and 4.40pm.

The strike follows mediation on 8 May, which saw IDEA Services negotiators walk out on our bargaining team, with no resolution in sight.

Members have agreed to mediation before the end of the month, but E tū Industry Coordinator, Alastair Duncan says it’s uncertain if IDEA Services will turn up, or how long they’ll stay.

Further strike notices have been issued for a fourth one-hour strike on 31 May.
