If you're a Wellingtonian and feel like doing some baking, there's a cake stall being run tomorrow, Monday 18 May, to support laid off LWR workers. The stall will be held outside Westpac House on Willis St, between 12.00 and 1.00.
Many of the laid off workers are owed thousands of dollars in holiday and redundancy pay. Receivership laws mean workers won't see the money owed them until LWR's assets are liquidated; and many workers will get nowhere near the full amount owing to them. Westpac and the Government have been asked to carry the debt and pay the workers in the interim until the assets are sold, but neither want to help out.
If you've got baking or solidarity or a donation to support the LRW workers, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on the cake stall.
