The members will be picketing this morning outside Maori TV’s South Auckland studios from 10 am.
The strike follows the failure of the company to settle members’ Collective Agreement, after talks last Thursday collapsed.
“We were really close on the money offered and we were very close on addressing the humiliation our members feel in the wake of the favourable treatment by Maori TV of its non-union members,” says Joe Gallagher, E tū Industry Coordinator.
“Maori TV promotes itself on values and treating people with dignity. But the company’s lack of respect for our members is what this dispute is all about,” says Joe.
