Photos from the ITP MECA strikes

Posted By TEU on Sep 16, 2009 |

Here’s a slide show of photos that people around the North Island have sent us of strikes happening at NorthTec, Waikato Institute of Technology, Bay of Plenty Polytechnic, Whitireia Polytechnic, Western Institute of Technology and Unitec. TEU members are protesting an attempt by their employers to increase their teaching hours and remove their disretionary leave, while only offering them a one percent salary increase with no back-dating and a 24 month term from the date of signing (effectively one percent for two and half years). You can send a mesage of support to these members at our online TEU forum:

Unitec TEU branch president Sarah Hardman has posted more photos on her Flickr site.
