Railway union decries sale of railway workshop

Nov 19th, 2012 | By | Category: Radio News

Organiser John Kerr says the recent decision to sell the Dunedin rail vehicle manufacturer shows the Government cares more about its place on the global market than it does about local workers.

LW: …economic policies.
DUR: 8 sec

John Kerr says a study by KiwiRail shows that workshops in New Zealand can produce enough high quality vehicles cost-effectively, without needing to buy offshore.
