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.

    Dear Talleys AFFCO MWU members,

    You’ve put up with alot for a long time. It’s not fair and it’s not on, but you are doing the right thing by continuing your fight – and I’m sorry it is a fight. It shouldn’t be this way.

    Hold your heads up high. Kia Kaha!

    In solidarity,

    My little brother worked for Talleys under horrendous conditions. As a MUA member I encouraged him to speak up about his conditions but he was too afraid to loose his job. He now works for Sealords under similar conditions. I 110% support everything you are doing to improve the working standards for this industry. Please keep up the fight for those who feel they have no voice, and for every worker to receive decent conditions and come home safe.

    Supported you last time, do now. Was amazed to see a Talley house by Nelson last year. Like South Fork from Dallas. I stopped buying Talley’s products during the lock out. Won’t again until I get the word from the Union

    Whatever happened to the notion of a fair go and a fair job as far as Talleys is concerned. You guys deserve better! go hard.

    The Talleys have always operated as if they were in Mississippi or Alabama. With the Northland by-election coming up we need to link the political campaign against this National government with the solidarity of meat workers at Affco Talley’s Moerewa plant.

    Research around the world clearly shows that happy workers are more productive workers.

    C’mon Talleys, use your brains! This had been proven!
