Trade Unions angry at high number of ACC claims

Oct 15th, 2014 | By | Category: Radio News

THE dangers of working in the forestry, agriculture and fishing industries have been highlighted in statistics released today.

A Statistics New Zealand report shows nearly a quarter of workers in those industries had ACC claims accepted last year.

Council of Trade Unions President Helen Kelly says the numbers go hand in hand with a lack of worker’s rights, wages and unions in the sectors.

She says the government needs to step in and make changes.
