New Plymouth mayor backs local oil rig workers in dispute

From Morning Report, 8:13 am on 24 June 2019

New Plymouth's mayor is backing local workers who say they've been overlooked in favour of foreigners for oil rigs jobs they have the skills for.

The Greens are now asking Immigration to review its decision to grant visas for 66 roles on the Taranaki oil rig that's owned by a Norweign company.
