Why are the Talleys afraid of a t-shirt?

According to AFFCO Talley's managers at Rangiuru and Horotiu plants, wearing a green t shirt with Jobs that Count on the front and Workmates, Whanau, Community on the back to and from work is intimidating.  Tell us what you think.

    You can imagine the heartburning that would have gone down had everyone meeting in the carpark, turned up wearing company supplied protective clothing? Or is the just another bridge too far?

    This is an age old tactic of those who wish to dominate others: blame the people you want to oppress for their own oppression. History is filled with countless examples.
    In this case, accusing the workers of intimidation is a blatant attempt by Talley’s to detract from their own bullying and intimidation. It is a deliberate part of their media campaign.
    Don’t give up brothers and sisters and keep selling those t-shirts nationwide!

    Why is that intimidating? What do they think they’re doing to their workers is?? They’re just big bullies who are having a strop because they can’t get their way!

    There only intimidating to those clowns… there is no the intimidating about a green and white shirt that has whanau and community on it. I feel the Mobsters and Black power patches are more intimidating then our t’shirts

    The Talley’s company are living in cloud cuckoo land (planet key) with their 19th century attitudes to workers and society. To declare that a Trade Union shirt is equivalent to gang insignia and that the company feels threatened and intimidated by them is to admit that Talley’s knows it is on a hiding to nothing in the employment courts and in public opinion.
