Occupy Wellington expresses the utmost solidarity with locked out CMP Workers in Marton. Please see these two links for more details, please see these two links:
“The week before the lockout notice, the company put the workforce on annual leave and used this time to contact workers at home and induce them to sign individual agreements containing the new terms and conditions. In the absence of their union representatives, some 100 workers gave in to this intimidation and signed. These workers were also forced to leave the union before signing the individual agreements.” –
This is a clear example of private profit being placed above the needs of people. This must change.
