A new competition

scarves and shirtFolks, the freebies are back! This time we have three silk scarves and a black polo shirt to give away to any Finsec members who subscribe to the Gossip before 31 August. Just send an email to Stephen with “Gossip” in the subject line.

The scarves and shirt are courtesy of Christopher Ng, the head of UNI Asia Pacific. UNI is the global union that represents finance workers around the world. Finsec is one of 900 unions (from 140 countries and covering 15 million workers) who are members of UNI. The issues UNI deals with include helping unions to develop global framework agreements, global objectives for decent work and decent rates of pay, minimum standards for health and safety, ensuring collective bargaining rights for all, global solidarity action, global policy development and research and global representation at organisations like the WTO.

Christopher was in New Zealand to meet with Finsec, and other affiliated unions, to talk about how UNI can help us build our capacity to campaign and organise workers in New Zealand. He also discussed how UNI affiliates like Finsec can support programmes aimed at organising workers in Pacific countries where unions either don’t currently exist or are struggling to grow. A good example of this the workers at the ANZ Vanuatu who joined a union and, with assistance and support from Finsec and the Australian FSU, have recently bargained and settled the first ever collective employment agreement.
