Celebrate Labour Day by joining a union

The Taxpayers’ Union is encouraging New Zealanders to celebrate Labour Day by joining a union – in particular, the Taxpayers’ Union.

The Union’s Executive Director, Jordan Williams, says, “With the events of the last seven days seeing the Opposition distracted, and the Government using the opportunity to rule out tax relief for New Zealand workers, external pressure groups fighting to hold the Government to account are as important as ever."

"We are using this important day to step-up our efforts fighting for Lower Taxes, Less Waste, and More Transparency.”

“Tax is by far the largest cost imposed on New Zealand workers and their families. Every dollar wasted by politicians and bureaucrats is one less for the hard working taxpayer who earned it.”

The Taxpayers’ Union relies on support by its members and subscribed supporters to fund its work. Becoming a supporter is free, with membership from as little as $5 at www.taxpayers.org.nz/join.
