Jami-lee Ross spoke on the third reading of theÂ Employment Relations (Secret Ballot for Strikes) Amendment Bill.
He sledged Winston Peters from the get go, then Andrew Little and Trevor Mallard…he has promise….with all that sledging. Good to see good hard sledging of members opposite.
Meanwhile the bill has passed 61-60, and New Zealand workers now have a little bit more freedom and democracy with the forcing of unions to now hold secret ballots for strike action.
The next time the Maritime Union calls for strike action they will now have to have a secret ballot. No longer will the bruthas be able stand over the members.
Well done Tau Henare for ensuring a good start is made on reforming our industrialÂ relationsÂ landscape for the better.
