National Distribution Union members who work at Farmers stores in Auckland have called a stopwork meeting and intend to meet at 11.30am at QE2 Square, Downtown.
It's not often retail workers, who are predominantly women, take such a step. These workers have been riled by a measly 20c wage increase offer by their bosses. They'd much rather have a $15 minimum wage thanks very much.
So if you're in Queen St tomorrow around lunch time and you see a bunch of loud and proud union women, and men, protesting for fair pay please consider offering them your support.
