Unions Otago Forum

Unlike Christchurch and Wellington where the local CTU has shamefully excluded trade unionists running for the Alliance from debates in favour of ACT Party candidates (pure genius!), in Dunedin the Alliance has always been welcome to speak at CTU forums.

I believe I will be the only trade unionist candidate addressing the meeting, as I work for the Maritime Union.

Tuesday 7 October at 7pm at the Burns Hall, First Church – see you there!

On the waterfront

leave a comment »

At Port Chalmers today for my work I was part of an International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) inspection of a flag of convenience container vessel to check on crew’s wages and conditions. I also caught up with some of the workers in the messroom and discussed the election campaign. Here I am with Maritime Union national president and Port Chalmers watersider Phil Adams (left) and ITF New Zealand co-ordinator Grahame McLaren (right.)

Below is a photo of onboard one of the vessels later tonight.
