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.

    You’re vital to the meat industry and a strong meat workers union is vital to the union movement. You do hard, skilled work. Meat prices are rising. You deserve a decent deal.

    Hi there, Good on you for standing up for what’s right. Too often big companies get away with shonky things because they think the workers rights don’t matter. But the forget that they need the workers to do the work. Keep fighting the good fight.

    AIL of New Zealand Ltd and all its staff would like to express their support for the workers at Talleys – everybody deserves a fair employment contract, not lock outs and no shows.

    To the Management Team of Talley’s

    Every worker deserves to be valued and treated with respect, regardless whether you are the Cleaner, Slaughterman or CEO. The stance that Talley’s are showing to the members of MWU by not concluding bargaining and giving the members a FAIR deal does not bode well by valuing your workforce.

    Shame on you TALLEY’S!!

    If anyone can stand up to the Talley family and their obnoxious employer mind set, poor behaviour towards workers and political shenanigans, you can. Kia kaha! Your friends won’t let you stand alone – we will be with you.

    I remember the 2012 lockout like it was yesterday, very tough times with this aggressive employer. Stay strong and stick together, you certainly have my support!
