CTU pays tribute to David Lange
Ross Wilson today, on behalf of unionists throughout the country, paid tribute to David Lange.
“David Lange led us to the dignity of an independent foreign policy”, said Ross Wilson, President of the Council of Trade Unions.
“This was in stark contrast to the subservience of the Vietnam War period”, he said today.
Unions also recognise that it was David Lange who called a halt to the excesses of Rogernomics - in areas such as social policy, the labour market and flat tax.
“Today, we pay tribute to David Lange for his leadership, vision, and values, and we send our condolences to his family and friends”.
“We also remember David for his fantastic wit and wonderful one-liners, even on the most serious of Prime Ministerial occasions”, said Ross Wilson.
