Putting Workers First

‘Out of touch’ Government blocks Easter trading petition in Parliament

Date of Release: 
Wednesday, June 29, 2016

The union representing retail workers is warning that the Government is out of touch with working people after passing the second reading of the Shop Trading Hours Amendment Bill, a law handing local authorities the power to permit trading on Easter Sunday.

‘New Zealanders are only guaranteed three and a half days off each year. We should protect that, not reduce it,’ said FIRST Union Retail and Finance Secretary Maxine Gay.
