More action in Fair Share campaign
Industrial action continues in the Fair Share - Five in '05 campaign.
Workers at Sam Wrigleys in Auckland are on strike until Thursday after walking off the job on Monday.
EPMU members at Fryco are threatening to strike again today after staging a one-day strike on Friday, and workers at PAL walked off the job yesterday morning.
The EPMU launched it Fair Share - Five in '05 campaign on February 27. Ninety-five per cent of agreements settled since then have included pay rises of at least five per cent - including the trendsetting Metals and Manufacturing Industries Collective Agreement.
