Labour’s new policy on work and wages, announced today, is good for the working people of New Zealand.
The Maritime Union is warning that New Zealand workers are under threat due to lack of regulation and enforcement of standards in industry.
The Maritime Union of New Zealand has thanked Green MP Sue Bradford, who announced her resignation from Parliament today, for her support for workers and those without a voice in the political process.
Maritime Union General Secretary Trevor Hanson says Sue Bradford was a friend of the Maritime Union and all workers.
“Sue was a principle driven politician during her time in Parliament who was ahead of her time and who provided a contrast to many other faceless representatives.”
The Maritime Union has announced its priorities for the 2008 election.
Maritime Union General Secretary Trevor Hanson says the Union wants to see the return of a Labour-led Government to continue what he describes as incremental but positive moves to develop the maritime and transport industries.
Mr Hanson says the Maritime Union is strongly endorsing the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions (CTU) election policy document, especially regarding key issues such as wages, employment relations, health and safety, ACC, and transport.
