Thumbs up to Greens workers’ policy

Finsec has given a thumbs up the Green Party Industrial Relations policy and says it offers tangible benefits to New Zealand workers.

“Families in particular would benefit from the Greens proposal to increase paid parental leave to 13 months. Well over half the workers in the finance sector are women and this parental leave improvement would provide greater security and support to those who wish to spend a longer time with their child after birth,” said General Secretary Andrew Casidy.

“Increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour, creating an additional public holiday, and better conditions for casual and temporary workers are policies that would see workers better off, and provide greater work-life balance. That is good for our society as a whole,” said Casidy.

Other unions echoed Finsec’s statements, with the CTU saying it was essential that there be a Green presence in the next Parliament.
