Tell your MP you support the Flexible Working Hours Bill

Flexible Working Hours

Currently MPs are receiving lots of letters from businesses opposing the Flexible Working Hours Bill. They need to hear that ordinary workers support the bill if it is to be passed.

Below is a simple email that you can send to your local Member of Parliament. Just follow these four steps:

1. Cut and paste this text text into an email:

Subject: Please support the Flexible Working Hours Bill

Please support the Flexible Working Hours Bill and give employees with caring responsibilities the right to request flexible working arrangements.

Flexible working practices give people more say over when and where they work, and enables them to better balance their work and their caring responsibilities, while still getting the job done.

Flexible work is good for parents, good for children and for people caring for adult dependents. It is also is good for business, as employees who have more say over their working hours are likely to feel more positive about their work and to be more productive.

It has worked in Britain. Let’s make it work here.

2. Add your name and address at the bottom of the email.

3. Find your local MP’s email address here and forward the email to that MP. Otherwise you can work out any MP’s email address because it will be firstname.lastname@parliament.govt.nz. For example: Winston.Peters@parliament.govt.nz

4. Make sure to CC the Coalition for Flexible Working Hours’ campaign organiser lmcintyre@paradise.net.nz into your email so we can track how many emails have been sent and to which MPs.
