Day of Action planned for October 20 2010
The Maori organiser for the Council of Trade Unions is encouraging Maori workers and their whanau to get involved in the union movement’s national day of action next month. Helen Te Hira says low income Maori workers have been hit hard by government actions. She says they will get a chance to speak out on what’s being called 20-10 2010. “So on the 20th of October there will be actions up and down the country led by unions but also whanau who are really feeling what’s been a cascade of attacks on working rights,” Ms Te Hira says.
