Unions target ACT leader's office in protest against repealing FPAs

The government says it'll repeal Fair Pay Agreements by Christmas.

It's also restated its intention to extend 90 day trials to every business in the country, not just those with fewer than 19 workers.

The move has put the government on a collision course with unions, who rallied outside David Seymour's office in Auckland today.

A leaked Cabinet paper has revealed the Workplace Relations minister, Brooke Van Velden, ignored advice from Treasury and claims there was no consultation.

Emma Stanford was there.
