Workers from Bunnings Dunedin will walk off the job at 3pm today in protest at the company’s refusal to compromise on rosters.
“Rosters are currently set with mutual agreement between managers and workers. That’s a fair system because it gives both sides an equal say,” says FIRST Union Dunedin organiser Shirley Walthew.
“But Bunnings wants to remove mutual agreement and hand bosses the power to unilaterally impose rosters.”
“This is going to put family time at risk. How are you meant to plan for things like childcare when you’ve lost control over your roster?”
