Those addressing the meeting include Unite (NZ) National Director, Mike Treen, and Unite (NZ) Organiser, Joe Carolan.

In March this year, fast food workers in New Zealand won a very significant victory. Through union organising, fast food strikes and a vibrant political campaign, zero hours contracts have been outlawed since April this year.
