Our campaign for job security gaining support

Finsec members have been growing support for our job security petition in the last week, more than doubling the number of signatures in the last twenty four hours.

Our petition will be presented at Parliament this Tuesday 5 May, meaning that petition forms can now be sent to Finsec up until 4pm Monday 4 May.

Finsec organiser Maxine van Oosten has been out in the community all week campaigning with Finsec members. On Tuesday, Finsec members were on the streets of Tauranga. Wednesday saw Maxine at the University of Waikato, drumming up support from students and university staff. Then Finsec had a Thursday lunchtime presence in Hamilton city centre, and all of the weeks activities resulted in several hundred petition signatures.

Maxine said that Finsec members sometimes underestimate the level of community support there is for bank staff. “I talked to someone who asked– can we ask the government to step in to help secure our jobs? I said – of course we can. And you can too!”

A special thanks goes out to the Service and Food Workers Union at Tegal – 70 of whom signed our petition.
