Govt to change law on zero hours contracts

From Nine To Noon, 9:09 am on 14 April 2015

The Government is set to change the law on zero contracts by the middle of the year, as a stoush between McDonalds and the Union continues. The Minister for Workplace Relations, Michael Woodhouse, says a law change will happen later this year to address what he says is the imbalance in zero hour contracts. Mike Treen is the National Director of the Unite union. Christine Hutton is the Director of Human Relations for McDonalds New Zealand.
