Finsec members’ stand for fairness

Hundreds of Finsec members around the country were part of a crowd of around 22,000 union members who took stopwork action this week in support of fairness and against cuts to our rights at work.

Tai Ah-Ching from Westpac Business Direct was one of the many thousands who packed out the Auckland venue, and came back inspired. “This was the first big union event I’ve been to and it has really influenced me to stick with Finsec.” So much so that Tai has already been talking to her non-member colleagues about the campaign and being part of Finsec.

“Listening to the speakers gave me a real motivation to stick up for our rights at work.”

ANZ National Union Councillor David Baker spoke to the 1500 strong crowd in Hamilton about the moves to cut workers’ access to their union. He told the meeting that the change would reduce union density and ultimately reduce pay and conditions, and finished by saying “Kia kaha. Stand tall, stand strong and let’s fight this battle.”
