Christchurch Solidarity March for Locked Out Progressive Enterprises Workers

At 11:30am on Friday the 8th of September at there will be a short solidarity march from the Trade Union Centre to the Square to mark the 15th day of the dispute that resulted in the Progressive Enterprises workers being locked out from their jobs.

No job means no pay.

Unionists and concerned members of the public who wish to show their support to the locked out workers are warmly invited to attend. Please bring banners. If you are in an artistic mood, why not paint your own banner with a special message for Progressive?

Progressive Enterprises will not allow their workers to come back to work until they give up their right to a national collective agreement. By tomorrow, distribution workers will have been locked out for 12 days. If a multimillion dollar multinational corporation like Progressive Enterprises are able to use stavation to bully their workers into submission, it will become more difficult for all workers to gain collective employment agreements.

Please assemble at the Trade Union Centre carpark at 11:30am

The National Distribution Union (ph 379 7671)
Engineering Printing and Manufacting Union (ph. 0800 186-466)
