Lift The Freeze On Low Pay
Support the Day of Action for Low-Paid Public Sector Workers
Friday 27 November
A series of protest rallies will take place across the country on Friday 27 November to protest wage freezes in the public services, in particular the health, disability care and education sectors, and to build wider public support for the freeze to be thawed.
The action will primarily involve members of the SFWU, NZEI and PSA but all other affiliates are encouraged to participate and show their support for this cause. The rallies are timed to take place for one hour at lunchtime on the 27th between 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm.
The attached includes a list of the towns and locations where the rallies are planned. Please circulate this notice widely and encourage your members to join the rallies where they can and ensure a significant public display of support for the messages to the Government about low-paid state and state-funded workers opposing the wage freeze.
In some locations transport will be arranged to help members attend. For further information contact the local SFWU organiser or call 0800 UNION1 (0800 864 661).
Fliers and branding for banners etc is in preparation to ensure unity and consistency of message across the country and will be forwarded soon. Please use the attached notice and list of venues to inform members.
