National Launches www.dinosaur.org.nz

Hon Max Braford
Opposition Industrial Relations Spokesperson

16 March 2000

www.dinosaur.org.nz - what you should know about the Employment Relations Bill

National will be communicating directly with the more than a million New Zealanders on line to make sure they know the full impact of the new Employment Relations Bill.

"In this new era of 'e-politics' we've launched a website solely committed to informing New Zealand workers and employers about the law change," Opposition Industrial Relations spokesperson Max Bradford said today.

"All people need to do is look up www.dinosaur.org.nz to find out more.

"Labour and the Alliance want to take us back to an era of union control over the workplace. But resurrecting dinosaurs of the past won't help New Zealanders. It is out of step with modern business practise and the new generation of employees.

"National will be working to ensure all New Zealanders are fully aware of the wide impact of the changes planned by the Government.

"The website follows the highly successful ACC website - www.fairgo.nz- which has helped keep New Zealanders in touch with changes to the current ACC system."
