Porirua community rallies behind supermarket workers

Date of Release: 
Saturday, July 23, 2016

Pak n Save’s signature ‘Stickman’ will be joining community members and supporters who are planning to rally outside Pak n Save Porirua to protest against the company’s poor pay offer in collective agreement negotiations.

‘Porirua is a proud “Living Wage” community, but Pak n Save Porirua is offering a wage increase that amounts to less than the recent increase in the minimum wage,’ said FIRST Union National Organiser Bill Bradford.

‘Pak n Save’s “Stickman” will be joining community members and supporters who are going to gather at midday on Saturday to send a message to the store owner: everyone is entitled to a wage they can live on.’

‘Supermarkets make enormous turnover each week, yet the workers who keep the stores running and in profit are on some of the lowest wages in the country. This isn’t acceptable,’ said Bradford.
