Finsec tells MPs employment law changes will wreak havoc

Finsec presented to the Select Committee looking at changes to employment law this week with a clear message that the changes will be bad for workers and employers.

General Secretary Andrew Casidy told the committee that cutting workers’ access to their union will create conflict. He talked about the legal case Finsec won to gain access to BNZ Insurances, and said that employers would be emboldened to keep union members from their union under the new provisions.

ANZ National Union Councillor Howden Gray told the committee that sick leave is already aggressively managed in the finance industry, to the extent that some staff are afraid to take genuine sick leave because of manager’s response. He also described the situation in Canada, where workers can sell all their annual leave, and some workers end up working years with no holidays.
