Action in Mt Wellington

Workers from mangere staged a picket for 2 hours this evening, they came across strike breakers getting paid twice the rate of normal workers and talked to dozens of shoppers about why they were on strike. Leaflets were handed out to shoppers and large speakers broadcast why the workers were their. The strike/lockout looks set to continue indefinetly as mediations broke down today and the supermarket attempts to play hardball with these workers lives. These workers are finding the strike/lockout hard and will be feeling the loss of a weeks pay so far. Public and supporters are encouraged to visit the picket at 90 favona road mangere or to give donations of food or money.
