Our job today is keeping workers in work – Finsec at the Job Summit

Finsec General Secretary Andrew Casidy is today representing Finsec members at the Government’s Job Summit in Auckland and told TVNZ Business this morning that the consequences of the recession need to be shouldered by all and not just workers.

“In our sector banks are still making healthy profits, they should be doing more. We need to look at what governments, and unions and employers can do together to keep employers employing people. After all the job of today is keeping workers in work and businesses in business,” said Casidy.

Andrew Casidy also said that offshoring of work needs to end to protect New Zealand jobs. “We’re one of the few countries in the world that don’t actively protect some of our jobs in some ways. … It’s just ludicrous that banks that make $1 billion or more should be sending jobs offshore to India. We need to look at this through the lens of we need to protect jobs.”
