CTU Welcomes New Cabinet
The Council of Trade Unions has today welcomed the announcement of Helen Clark’s third Cabinet.
“This Cabinet is a strong signal of the Government’s commitment to an investment approach to economic and social development,” said Ross Wilson, CTU President.
“We particularly welcome the appointment of Ruth Dyson as Minister of Labour,” said Ross Wilson. “Ruth has demonstrated her ability and integrity as a politician and we look forward to working with her in this new role.”
“The CTU conference has reaffirmed our commitment to investment in skills, infrastructure, and support for lifting wages alongside productivity. We will be looking for this commitment from the new Cabinet also,” said Ross Wilson.
