TELECOM WORKERS- NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION MON 24 AUG



EPMU TELECOM/VISIONSTREAM DISPUTE - NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION – MONDAY 24 AUGUST
Yesterday EPMU members involved in the ongoing Telecom/Visionstream dispute unanimously endorsed a National Day of Action this MONDAY, 24 AUGUST. The EPMU will send out more information shortly about events throughout the country, but this is an urgent request to all Auckland unions to support the following Auckland events:
•When: Picket commences at 7.30am (arrive earlier if you need to park in nearby side-streets);
•Where: Meet at Western Park, corner of Ponsonby Road and Hopetoun Street (now known as BBQ Corner);
(click here for map: http://www.wises.co.nz/l/Auckland/Ponsonby/Hopetoun+Street/#c/2rfr1/70h4s/0/)
•What: The picket will commence at 7.30am at the Park. Groups will move off to picket the nearby Telecom offices and K-Road intersections. The pickets will be maintained throughout the day. Teams of picketers will also be dispatched to various CBD locations at lunchtime (approx 12.30pm) to leaflet the public and obtain signatures for the campaign petition;
•How: As the picket will be maintained throughout the day, we need supporters to come along at any time to support (even if you can just hang out for 10 minutes, everyone is welcome). We especially need supporters at the key times of 7.30am (to hit morning traffic), 12.30pm (to hit lunchtime public) and 3.30pm (to hit evening traffic);
•Bring: People, union banners, signs, drums, bins (if you don’t have drums), anything else to support the picket;
•Food: A BBQ breakfast will be provided at 7.30am and throughout the day.
For further information, please call me on the numbers listed below. Thanks again for your support in a campaign that the union movement must, and will, win.
