Call to Save Warehouse Jobs

July 17, 2018

The First Union is calling for Regional Economic Development Minister Shane Jones to intervene and stop any job losses at the Warehouse.

 

Under a proposal put to affected staff last month, up to 180 jobs may go

at 93 stores.

 

First Union organiser Kate Davis says the consultation phase had been a "shambles" and workers wanted more clarity about the changes.

 

The regions would be hardest hit by any job losses and the union wanted Shane Jones to step in.

 

The Warehouse declined to be interviewed, but told RNZ it would consider all the feedback from the workers and the union next week.

 

The company has already made changes to its marketing and human resources teams and moved its in-store strategy to an everyday low-price model.
