Help lift the freeze on low pay

Next Friday there will be rallies nationwide to campaign for fair pay for low paid workers in public services, schools and hospitals. The rallies – supported by Primary School Teachers Union NZEI Te Riu Roa, the SFWU and the Public Service Association,  are to send the government a message to lift their pay freeze on low paid workers. The rallies run from Kaitaia to Invercargill and many other places between, from 12.30 -1.30 next Friday 27 November.

There’s plenty of good reasons for Finsec members to give up our lunchtimes to attend. Firstly, low or no pay rises for these workers influence wage expectations in our own industry – and we need more than 0%! Also many of our friends and families will have jobs in this sector, and these union members need our support. And, the public services we all receive depend on the skills and experience of these workers!
