Two of Labour’s strongest affiliate unions are joining together to create a super union…well a bigger union than the hollow shells they are now.
What is funny is watching left-wingers use the same justifications for the super-city to create their Uber-union
The old adage of strength in numbers is the main driver behind the proposed merger between two of New Zealand’s larger unions.
In July, the potential combination of the Service and Food Workers Union (SFWU) with the Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union (EPMU) will be put to the vote at a national conference and if it gets the thumbs up there, the memberships of both groups will then get to have their say.
The merger could result in a more than 50,000 strong union being established, which would make it the second biggest group behind the Council of Trade Unions. The current membership of the SFWU is about 21,000, while the EPMU numbers sit around 32,000.
