Making sure workers and our communities are at the heart of New Zealand’s COVID-19 recovery

The COVID-19 crisis has affected every worker in New Zealand. Our country has been lucky but big changes lie ahead and E tū is determined we will rebuild better. We need a future that’s better for workers, better for the country and better for the next generation.

“When I got into security, I found out that so many guards are on minimum wage and you can’t make ends meet that way. So, I am lobbying and campaigning for Fair Pay Agreements and the Living Wage, because what we get paid now doesn’t reflect the mahi that we do. Let’s use COVID-19 as our opportunity to fix these big pressing issues.”
