Waikato support workers walk out

Thanks to all the PSA and E tū members who turned out to picket Community Living Limited’s offices in central Hamilton!

Around 100 people protested during the 2-hour stoppage by specialist support workers – who offer residential help to intellectually disabled clients across Waikato.

CLL offered union members a pay increase of 15 cents an hour phased in over 2 years, which the PSA called an insult which would cement workers into poverty wages.

Here's some photos from the action:
