EPMU to petition Governor General on fire at will bill today
The Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union will today present an urgent petition to the Governor General, Anand Satyanand, to request he delays or refuses royal assent to the ‘fire at will’ bill until it has been through the proper select committee process.
The bill is currently being rammed through Parliament under urgency and is expected to pass later this morning.
The union has been gathering signatures on worksites and via the Internet for the last day and a half and will be presenting the petition to the Governor General at Government House at 1pm today. Media are welcome to attend.
