Press Release: National Distribution Union

Union Offers Free Membership to Otter Finder

The National Distribution Union is offering free union membership to the person who finds Jin the otter, says National Secretary Laila Harré.

Mrs Harré says that the National Distribution Union is a community-union and is committed to supporting members of the wider community, no matter their size or feeding habits.

“With the high number of low and minimum wage jobs and companies paying youth rates, it would certainly be easier to find Jin than a decent wage,” she said.

The union has printed bumper stickers that read “It’s easier to find Jin than a decent wage.”
