Important message for all :
The Meat Workers Union continues to stand with AFFCO and other Talley's workers in the Meat Industry. For as long as it takes, the union movement and the community is with these workers. The longer it goes on, the more determined we are.
More than 20,000 proud meat workers work in NZ’s freezing works who contribute to an important NZ export industry. Most companies in the meat industry understand the important role that the skill and commitment of workers play in their industry. They play fair.
But Talley's owned companies don't. They are outliers in this industry and they are letting everyone down.
We need your help. Join with us and we'll be in touch about what’s happening in this important campaign.
When 10,000 people in our community signed a very polite letter to Sir Peter Talley and published it in the Nelson Mail last weekend, the Company’s General Manager Andy Leonard described it as “typical Union sleaze”.
Local Body elections are coming up fast and they matter to MWU members. So many decisions made by Local Council affect their day to day lives, including those that impact on their jobs and plant. Nominations for candidates close on 12th August and the electoral roll closes the same day....
Every month's a biggie if you work in a Talley's-owned meat works. But the 21at July Appeal Court hearing is huge. AFFCO Talley will try to overturn the Full Bench decision of November 2015 that saw hundreds of meat workers back at work on their old union agreements.
