The terrible death of MWU member, Alfred ("Baldy") Edwards at the AFFCO Wairoa plant last week has rocked his workmates, his whanau and his community. This should not have happened.
The priority for MWU has been giving support to his whanau and workmates. But there will be a reckoning. Worksafe is investigating, MWU is insisting this is led by whanau and our union. Baldy should never have died. Moe mai ra.
