CTU - information for workers

The CTU website has a page with information for Christchurch workers affected by the earthquake. Some of the information is specific to the period immediately after the 22nd of February, while the rest relates to now and the future. There are 10 earthquake and employment FAQ's on the page, which can be found here.

Yesterday the CTU announced a programme called Together. The following is from their news page:
Together is a new organisation established and run by the unions affiliated to the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions. Together aims to connect workers in un-unionised work places with the union movement and the union experience. Membership, costing just $1 per week ($52 per year), gives employees and contractors, in industries and locations without union support, access to help and expert advice.
Together also offers family/whanau membership giving the opportunity for current union members to join up as many of their family and whanau as they want for just $1 per week. Family/whanau membership makes their family part of the union family and gives them the values and benefits union members share.
The full news item can be found here.
