CTU MEDIA RELEASE 05 March 2008
What exactly is National’s Agenda For Work Rights?
“National needs to start spelling out exactly what it would do with worker rights, after mixed messages from the party on the matter,” CTU president Helen Kelly said, following National Party industrial relations spokesperson Kate Wilkinson’s speech to a business audience in Auckland this morning.
“Industrial relations has been a traditional point of difference between the main parties. While it may be reassuring to hear from the National spokesperson that they would do nothing that would cut working conditions, this is at odds with public statements on the party’s website, and how they have voted in Parliament.”
