CTU Unions to Hold Special National Meeting re: Distribution Workers Lockout
CTU Affiliated Unions will hold a special meeting in Wellington this Friday to discuss further financial support to workers that have been locked out by Progressive Enterprises.
All of the CTU’s affiliated membership will be represented at the meeting, CTU president Ross Wilson said tonight.
“The supermarket distribution workers are backed by the whole union movement,” Ross Wilson said. “Unions have already been fundraising for these workers in the last week and the meeting will discuss building on this support on an ongoing basis.”
“Progressive Enterprises are trying to starve their workers into submission, and the union movement won’t tolerate this bullying,” Ross Wilson said.
