Maritime Union wants one on one consultations for vaccines

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 5 August 2021

The Maritime Union is calling for health authorities to offer one on one consultations for port union workers who are vaccine-hesitant.

The union, which represents waterfront and port workers and seafarers, says that's the best way to counteract Covid-19 misinformation.

Covid-19 Minister Chris Hipkins has blamed a 'wave of misinformation' for keeping 44 percent of port workers from getting their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

Maritime Union National Secretary Craig Harrison spoke to Susie Ferguson.
