The Council of Trade Unions is calling on Transport Minister Gerry Brownlee to tell Aucklanders what information he is withholding on the Ports of Auckland dispute.
Last month the CTU wrote to Gerry Brownlee under the Official Information Act, requesting any briefings he has had on the Ports dispute.
CTU president Helen Kelly said his response, received today, said that he would refuse to release any information at all.
“Gerry Brownlee needs to explain to Aucklanders what he is withholding.”
“The Port is one of Auckland’s most important assets, and it is being run appallingly by the current Board and management.”
“There is a clear public interest in knowing what our Transport Minister is being told about this dispute.”
