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.
123 years since women got the vote, the Government has finally agreed to adopt equal pay principles. That's step one down, now there's two more to go.
We're sending a message to Parliament to support equal pay.

To the Female MPs of New Zealand
On the 19th of September you received a white flower in celebration of Suffrage Day. 123 years on from the enfranchisement of women in Aotearoa, it's time to really tackle the suffrage movement's next big issue - Equal Pay.
And doing that is easy as 1, 2, 3:
- Implement the agreed Equal Pay Principles
- Settle the equal pay claim brought by Kristine Bartlett on behalf of all caregivers
- Allocate funding so that equal pay claims can be settled.
I want you to know I'm right beside you taking those next steps.
