Show your support

1000 MWU members who work for AFFCO Talleys have been trying to get a fair agreement for a year now.  Their old agreement expired a year ago and with new employment laws coming in on 6th March, your show of solidarity right now is just what they need to make another push.

    It is really not much to ask for a fair and reasonable agreement! Hold your ground and tell your employer that it is nothing radical, nothing out of the ordinary what you are asking for. Shame on AFFCO for not signing and letting you hang out there in limbo!

    Tu kotahi!

    I am totally in support of all of our workers getting a decent living wage. It is unbelievable that we lock workers into poverty while management keep voting themselves bigger and bigger increases.. Kia kaha

    As with any person in this country, you deserve a decent wage (read living wage) and decent working conditions .I have whanau working in this industry (some for over 30 years) and I can not believe the miserable money and conditions they are subjected to. I have been boycotting Talley’s products since this started. Keep it up!

    I come from the Nelson region – the place the Talleys are proud to call home. I’m proud to call Nelson home too. But I’m not proud of many things in our region – anti-Union behaviour, low “sunshine wages” and a seasonal workforce that can’t make plans for their futures and their families futures. It’s sad to say I’m not surprised that the Talleys haven’t settled this agreement. Come on Talleys! Give these workers a fair go! A collective agreement gives your workers some certainty, and the same for your company. A well paid, respected workforce is a happy and productive workforce. Your current approach benefits no one.

    Hang in there the owners of Talley’s are wealthy and can afford to pay a decent wage. I will not buy Talleys product until they make a sensible offer. Don’t cave in and stand together
