Wellington - Fight the anti-worker laws: Public discussion

Fight the anti-worker laws: Public discussion

7pm Wednesday September 1st

Thistle Hall, 293 Cuba Street (Entrance on Arthur St side)

The National Government recently announced a series of new attacks on workers across New Zealand. If the raft of proposed changes to the anti-worker Employment Relations Act (ERA, brought in by the previous Labour Government in 2000) and the Holidays Act go through, we will all face a future with more unemployment, even less job security, less days off in both sick and annual leave, lower pay and all the stress and frustration that goes with all of that.

But it’s not all doom and gloom - together, we have a huge amount of power as workers and, if we can work collectively and exercise that power, we can not only defeat these proposed law changes, but also improve significantly on the status quo!

The Wellington branch of the Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement invites you to a public discussion on ideas for resistance to this new round of attacks on workers.

The Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement (AWSM) is a national organisation working towards a classless, stateless society: anarchist-communism. As class-struggle anarchists our priority is active involvement in workplace struggles and industrial action as well as community based campaigns in our neighbourhoods. We encourage working class people to organise themselves against capital and the state. We do not seek to paternalistically organise people from the top down.
