Covid-19: Regular port testing came too late - Union

From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 8 September 2020

The Maritime Union of New Zealand say regular testing at ports has come too late.

The Union is concerned that the government health order for mandatory regular testing only targets Ports of Auckland and Tauranga.

Staff at other ports around New Zealand want regular testing as they too are interacting with international ships and cargo.

Joe Fleetwood is the Maritime Union of New Zealand National Secretary.

He speaks to Corin Dann.
