Maritime Union offers solidarity to Japan

The Maritime Union of New Zealand has offered its sympathy and solidarity with the people of Japan following the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 11 March.

Maritime Union General Secretary Joe Fleetwood says the disaster has hit many coastal and port communities and the Union had been in touch with maritime unions in Japan.

There were close ties between maritime workers in the two countries, and the support offered by Japan to New Zealand in the recent Christchurch earthquake must be reciprocated.

Information on what unions are doing, and what you can do, to help can be found at the International Transport Workers’ Federation or at Labourstart.
