It’s been a busy quarter for sector hui. Both Rātonga mahi ā te Kāwanatanga/Public Service Sector and Te Pōari Hauora ā Rohe/District Health Board Sector held their respective hui at Orongomai Marae, Upper Hutt, Wellington. In addition, Rātonga Mahi ā Hāpori/Community Public Services, Kāwanatanga-ā- Rohe/Local Government, and Rāngai Tūmatanui/State Sector held a combined hui in Auckland.
Te Rūnanga committee convenor Marcia Puru says sector hui provide a bridge between Māori delegates and the wider PSA.
“Sector hui are held at least every two years and give Māori delegates within each sector an opportunity to discuss issues of interest for Māori, provide recommendations to sector rūnanga and Te Kōmiti o Te Rūnanga O Ngā Toa Āwhina, as well as complete the elections for Sector Māngai,” she says.
“While there are sector-specific issues that Māori delegates discuss at each hui, there’s also quite a bit of common ground between the sectors. For example, at the recent hui delegates discussed Ngā Kaupapa o Te Rūnanga o Ngā Toa Āwhina, Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the state sector, and Te Ture Whenua Māori Reform.
There was great participation at this year’s hui and Sector Māngai positions are nearly filled on Te Rūnanga Kōmiti.
“Thanks to everyone who participated in the hui. Congratulations to all Sector Māngai who were elected – all of us on Te Rūnanga look forward to working with you in the coming term,” Marcia says.
Nō reira, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou kātoa.
