Tainui gets behind AFFCO workers

Related

Tainui is getting behind locked out AFFCO meat workers.

Workers are rallying in Ngaruawahia today, following similar rallies in Moerewa and Wanganui over the past few days.

One locked-out worker Waatu Muru says the tribe is looking at ways it can support workers, who've been locked out since February.

He says the majority of workers are Maori, and around 80 percent belong to Tainui.

"We want to go to work, but we can't. The disruption to the tribe is major."

AFFCO and the meat workers union will re-enter mediation talks on Thursday.
