Thousands of MBIE, IRD workers to strike over pay

From Morning Report, 8:36 am on 9 July 2018

Around 4000 public servants are walking off the job today over what they say is poor pay. Union members from Inland Revenue (IRD) and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) will stop working for two hours at 1pm. PSA national secretary Glenn Barclay says union members were "very reluctant" to strike, but feel they have no choice. Mr Barclay talks to Guyon Espiner.
