Supersize2- the Workers Strike Back

Supersize2- the Workers Strike Back

After winning a collective contract for workers at KFC, Pizza Hut and Starbucks, fast food workers in the UNite union now turn their attention to the most anti union corporation in the business, McDonalds. Months of negotiations have now revealed that their is no real willingness to engage by Golden Arches management, and workers there now appeal to the wider trade union movement and community to support them in the months ahead as they begin their campaign for $12 an hour min wage, secure hours and an end to youth rates.

Friday Night is McFight Night
The McDonalds campaign will be launched in earnest this Friday Night (June 9th) at the Point Chevalier branch of McDs in Auckland. Workers are asking for support fro other trade unions, campaign groups and the wider community- all of us who are sick of poverty pay and anti union practices.

The eyes of the world are now on Auckland.Spread the word. Bring down your banners. UNite promises to fight one day longer than the McDonalds corporation, and what promises to be a historic battle for labour rights of international significance. If workers in the Golden Arches can organise and win improvements here, it will create a precedence for millions of workers around the world in so called "McJobs". Do your bit, and bring at least two friends down.

Friday Night is McFight Night
Point Chevalier Mc Donalds,
Great North Road, Point Chevalier, Auckland.

In the NZ Herald, Audrey Young has compiled a useful list of the many, many ways that Luxon plans to roll back the progress made here over the past 40 years in race relations... More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
