It should be okay to ask for better health and safety at work and it should be okay for people to do it together. But at SaveMart - it isn’t
At the secondhand clothing store 10 women have been told they’ll be sacked in 4 weeks, after they asked in union for protective gloves when sorting donated clothes.
We’re calling on SaveMart owner Tom Doonan to prove he has any respect of the people who work for him and give back the jobs he has taken away.6,558 signatures
To SaveMart owner Tom Doonan
I am asking you to save the jobs of the 10 workers you have targeted to sack because they raised a health and safety concern at work.
You need to prove that you can respond responsibility to health and safety issues in your workplace, that you do not single out and bully people working for you when they act in union and show you have some respect for the people who work for you.
A massive payroll error means New Zealanders are owed billions in holiday backpay.
But every day a million dollars of that debt is being written off as it passes the six year statute of limitations.
Tell the government to stop the clock on the write-off while we get this problem fixed.4,910 signatures
To the Rt Hon John Key and Cabinet,
New Zealanders are losing a million dollars a day in unpaid leave - please put the CTU’s Bill to the house under urgency to stop the clock on this write-off. Kiwis deserve the chance to recover the back-pay they are owed.
The Government is trying to pass a law that puts retail workers’ Easter Sunday at risk. Peter Dunne and Te Ururoa Flavell can stop this happening. Sign the petition to tell them to put family ahead of shopping.5,429 signatures
To Peter Dunne and Te Ururoa Flavell,
Having a few days in the year when people are completely free to spend time with their family and friends is so very important. There's enough pressure on people to fill their lives with work as it is - being able to take a little time for yourself and your loved ones is a vital part of who we are.
The Shop Trading Hours Amendment Bill puts one of these precious protected days at risk for Kiwis who work in retail.
We urge you to do right by working New Zealanders and their families and vote against this Bill.
Please, choose family over shopping.
Sir Peter Talley isn't listening to his workers, but he’ll listen to his community and his customers. Sign the petition to tell him to do the Kiwi thing and negotiate properly with the people who make his business successful.10,191 signatures
To Sir Peter Talley
You and your family have been part of the fabric of New Zealand's society for decades. But your response to the Kiwis working in your Talley's AFFCO meat-plants is out of line with our values as New Zealanders.
We are the people who live in your community, who buy your products, who have helped you and your family do so well for so long. Now we ask that you do the right thing by the Kiwis who work at AFFCO and:
- Listen to your workers and accept their right to join unions and bargain as a group.
- Negotiate fairly with your workers’ chosen representatives.
- Give workers real input into health and safety.
We know you consider yourself to be a good New Zealander. It's time to live up to that.
