Seasons Greetings

Friday, December 14, 2012

As this is the last Gossip of the year, here at Gossip HQ we’d like to take this chance to wish you all the best for the festive season.

Many of you will be working through the break, so remember the union’s Member Support Centre is here to help if you need assistance from your union. 

Member Support is open until December 24, closed December 25 & 26, operating (at reduced hours) on December 27, 28 and 31 December, and then back on deck with normal hours from January 3 onwards.

All the very best – we’ll catch you back here in 2013.

Friday, December 14, 2012

Charter schools are a bad idea. Allowing unqualified people to teach our kids, companies to make a profit from schools and power being taken away from our local community in running its local school won't help our childrens' education.

If you’ve experienced any issues regarding your membership of FIRST Union, then get in touch with membershipteam@firstunion.org.nz for assistance.
