Justice for the Highland Park Cinema workers- come to the rally this Thursday at 5pm
in Queen Street. Event Cinemas have laid off Highland park workers, many with long
service of 8, 12 and 16 years length, and paid them only 2 weeks pay. Workers in
Aotearoa have no basic rights to redundancy protected by law, as most other workers
do in developed countries. How they have been treated could happen to us all, and in
these times of recession and cutbacks, it is unjust that a company that can spend
millions on Digital and 3D Projection technology can not do the right thing by
workers who have given them a huge part of their working lives. Join the brave women
and men of Highland Park on Thursday 7th February at 5pm, for a mass picket at Event
Cinemas in Queen Street. Invite your workmates and friends, bring your union,
community and party banners. It is about time that workers in New Zealand had basic
rights, and that the Multinational Corporations who profit and siphon the wealth out
of here paid the rent. Time for a minimum four weeks redundancy, and 2 weeks for
every additional year worked as recognition for length of service. An injury to one
is an injury to all. https://www.facebook.com/events/578268278850295/
