Kua hoki atu ngā kaipatu mīti ki te mahi i tēnei wiki, whai muri i ngā rā kotahi rau ono tekau mā waru e porotū ana. Ahakoa ngā whakataunga e rua a te kooti ā-mahi i ngā marama e toru, ko tā ngā kaimahi kāore te kamupene i te ū ki ngā kōrero a te tiati.

Nā te whakataunga a te kooti ā-mahi i hoki atu ai ia ki te mahi i tēnei wiki, whai muri i ngā marama maha e porotū ana.

Hei tā Justin Kaimoana, he mema uniana, “The judge ruled that you go back on the terms and conditions you were on prior to getting laid off slash locked out and that was your shift you were on with your seniority.”

“Seasonal work can be quite unpredictable but seniority ensures that from season to season you have ongoing employment without it nothing is guaranteed,” hei tā Melissa Kaimoana

Ahakoa te hokinga atu ki te mahi, kāore anō kia tau tēnei take. Ko tā Kaimoana kāore te kamupene i te ū ki ngā kōrero a tiati Bruce Corkill i tērā marama.

As we found out on Monday when we went back to work, the company are still trying to undermine the Union. 3.38.00 I think to them it's just a big game to them but to us, this is our livelihood that place, that freezing works. Hei tā Justin Kaimoana

I tutū ai te puehu nā te kore whakaae a ngā mema uniana ki te kirimana takitahi hōu a te kamupene. He kirimana i whakahē i tō rātou mana, utu-a-tau, me te tau hoki o tō rātou wāhi mahi.

Hei tā Justin Kaimoana “The money wasn't the issue for us even though everyone’s gotta survive you gotta have the money to survive, the bigger issue was our rights.”

Pēnei i tēnei whānau, he tini tonu rātou i whawhai mō te mana-tōpū a i te uniana, nā tēnei tu āhua ka kore rawa rātou i whiwhi pūtea.

Hei tā Justin Kaimoana, “It's broken families, they tried break our spirit financially domestically I don't think these fallas have a conscious.”

“Talleys isn't going to drive me out of my home they can't drive me out of my home and force me to raise my children away from their whānau and elder grandmother it's just wrong!” hei tā Melissa Kaimoana.

Kei te whawhai tonu te uniana mō āna kaimahi 32 kāore anō kia hoki atu ki te mahi. Ko tā AFFCO Talley kua hoki ngā kaimahi ki te wāhi mahi i raro i te kirimana o mua engari kei tatari tonu matou mo tetahi uiui ki a AFFCO Talley.
