Workers at the Warehouse Manukau walk off the job in “wildcat” strike

Date of Release: 
Thursday, August 6, 2015

Union members at the Warehouse Manukau are undertaking a “wildcat” strike* after rejecting the company’s measly offer of a 30 cent wage increase, says FIRST Union organiser Dennis Maga.

“If workers accept the offer of a 30 cent wage increase then that would only lift the lowest pay rate to $15.32 - nowhere near the levels needed to support a family in Auckland.”

“Workers were so insulted with the 30 cent offer that they voted to undertake a wildcat strike,” says Maga.
