IDEA members have again voted by a 99% to 1% margin for further strike action in support of the E tū claim to lift pay and prevent IDEA rolling back existing rights.
The next strike is a one-hour strike starting on Monday 13 May at 3.30 pm and lasting till 4.30 pm. A further strike is planned for the 20 May at the same time if needed.
On 8 May we will meet with IDEA to see if their position has changed and report any progress.
In the meantime, all affected members are reminded that the strike is your legal right and that if managers ask you if you are going to be working, you can tell them that we have advised IDEA of the strike and it’s your right to strike for the hour.
Auckland RIDSAS workers will start a paperwork ban at 10.00 am on the same day.
The full voting results will be published following the counting of special votes.
