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.10,214 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.

Eramiha Pairama was killed at work in 2013.
His employer was ordered to pay reparations but the company folded and never paid.
Now his mum Selina can't afford a headstone for him, but we can help.
Please, chip in to stand with Selina and her son's memory.
Update: Thanks so much for your support! We’ve been overwhelmed with the support of people standing together to support Selina in her son Erahima’s memory. Together, we have raised enough contributions for a headstone, and some additional to support Selina.
This donation page remains open after requests for people still wanting to help in making a koha for Selina. Selina never received anything of the $75,000 that her son’s employer was ordered in Court to pay in reparations. We can help in the long term by fighting to fix the system that let this happen, and to support Selina right now too.”

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!9,372 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 bus drivers are protected and have security.
Equal pay affects everyone: the recent uni grad just starting her first job, the mum who is taking a couple of years out of paid work to raise her children, to school support and social workers.
Treat Her Right is about all of us. We still need your voice, and as many voices as possible, so we make 2017 the year that equal pay became real.
Will you join with us to make this happen?8,634 signatures
- I support equal pay in every workplace.
- I want equal pay for women now.
Women work hard for the money, so let’s treat them right.
Local Government is where some of the most vital decisions for our communities, our environment, and our families are made. It’s our democracy – let’s stand up for it!1,778 signatures
This year we vote on what kind of local government we want.
Our District and Regional Councils, and District Health Boards, make some of the most important decisions that affect our lives. It’s not just about rubbish and rates. It’s about the plans that shape our communities over decades. Local government should create jobs, protect our environment, and make sure our families and our communities enjoy the good lives we all deserve. And we can make it do that. All we have to do is work together.
So sign up, let us know your home town so we can keep you in touch with local campaigns, and together we’ll make a real difference in our communities and across New Zealand. It’s our democracy – let’s make it work for all of us.
