On a bus anywhere in the Wellington region, you hear it all the time - “thank you, driver” - as passengers get off at their stop. We say it because we appreciate our bus service - a good bus network and great drivers make a huge contribution to the life of our cities.
But, for something that is so important, we’re treating the people who drive us poorly.
Greater Wellington Regional Council has ditched the current bus companies from many of the region’s routes. The drivers on those routes are about to lose their jobs - they have no idea if they will get work with the new contractors. Even if they do, they may be forced to work for less money or under worse conditions.
So, let’s show the Regional Council that - unlike them - we appreciate our bus drivers. Please sign and say thank you driver!8,235 signatures
I value the contribution that bus drivers make to the bus network in the Wellington region.
Wellington’s bus drivers should not have their jobs taken from them or get paid less to do the same work when the Wellington Regional Council makes a decision to change the bus contracting company.
I want Greater Wellington Regional Council to provide job security for Wellington’s current bus drivers.
And I want the Greater Wellington Regional Council to show they value bus drivers too, and make sure that if they decide to change the company who provides the bus service, then bus drivers are protected and have security.
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.
