UNIONS WAIKATO  we invite you to join us at a meeting to hear KRISTINE BARTLETT's story.

Kristine and the Service and Food Workers Union, Nga Ringa Tota have won an historic legal victory for thousands of low-paid women workers.  The win is a huge step forward for the rights of working women and it shows that for far too long 'women's work' has been undervalued and underpaid.

When:     Wednesday 25 March 2015

Time:       6:00 pm
