Maori TV members strike today




8 August 2018

E tū members at Maori TV are on
strike as of 6am this morning for 24 hours.

The members
will be picketing this morning outside Maori TV’s South
Auckland studios from 10 am.

The strike follows the
failure of the company to settle members’ Collective
Agreement, after talks last Thursday collapsed.

“We were
really close on the money offered and we were very close on
addressing the humiliation our members feel in the wake of
the favourable treatment by Maori TV of its non-union
members,” says Joe Gallagher, E tū Industry
Coordinator.

“Maori TV promotes itself on values and
treating people with dignity. But the company’s lack of
respect for our members is what this dispute is all
about,” says
Joe.
