Mayor hopeful supports strike.
Sam Kingi said "I have been following the struggle waged by NUPE for some time and I am disgusted that Richmond Fellowship treats its workers so badly."
"These workers do demanding and potentially dangerous work and are paid as low as $11.00 an hour. They have no shift allowances, no overtime rates, just low pay" said Sam Kingi.
"I wish the workers at Richmond Fellowship engaged in this struggle well and hope the strike gets you closer to a fairer deal."
