Who is protecting Labour’s vulnerable workers?

One of the promises that David Cunliffe made during the pork-fest that the Labour leader selection battle became was to extend Part 6A to ALL workers. Presumably he also meant workers in parliamentary services? 

With the blood bath and wholesale sackings going on inside Labour one would have thought those people should be protected as vulnerable workers.

Earlier I reported that half of the staff had been sacked but the word is that ALL of them have been told that their jobs are gone although some may salvage a career but none of them have that guarantee.

And of those who do come back they can also expect significant pay cuts.

So much for his much vaunted promises to the union movement who delivered 70% of their vote. David Cunliffe is failing to protect Labour’s vulnerable workers and showing up the farce of such legislation giving Simon Bridges even more reason to get rid of Part 6A completely.

David Cunliffe can hardly oppose it now when he refuses to keep on the workers of his former boss.
