Strike three for Fuji Xerox members
27 March 2019
Workers at Fuji Xerox will walk off the job for a third time this morning in an escalating dispute over the company’s absolute refusal to pay backpay on a 2% pay offer.
The 41 members will strike for 24 hours from 8.30am, at company offices in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin.
“If they don’t get the back pay, it means these workers will have had a wage freeze for a year,” says Joe Gallagher, E tū Industry Coordinator.
“At the same time, they are being asked to work smarter, harder and longer for no reward,” he says.
Joe says the members have responded by voting overwhelmingly for this latest action.
“The cost of the backpay is less than $100,000 and our members are committed to a fair outcome for all of them. They are determined to get what they believe they deserve, and what they are worth,” says Joe.
