Date of Release: 
Wednesday, November 2, 2016

A union representing approximately 2000 labour hire workers in the logistics industry is calling on the Government to urgently introduce a licensing system in an effort to regulate the “wild west” industry. 

The call for a licensing system comes after NewsHub revealed that Work and Income New Zealand has, according to one person, “coerced” unemployed workers to sign unlawful employment contracts with labour hire firms.
