Dis­missal laws gen­er­ate cam­paign

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Thou­sands of work­ers from Kaitaia to Bluff will stop work for two hours to­day to at­tend union meet­ings protest­ing against the Govern­ment’s em­ploy­ment laws.

The changes pro­posed in­clude ex­tend­ing the re­moval of rights to ap­peal un­fair dis­missal to all work places and al­low­ing em­ploy­ers to request a sick note even on the first day of ill­ness.

New Zealand unions have vowed to cam­paign against these changes un­til these rights are re­stored.

This Day of Ac­tion is part of that cam­paign and a rally in Toko­roa be­gins on Bridge St at 10am.
