Strikers do community work

From The Panel, 4:09 pm on 23 July 2018

Dunedin Inland Revenue staff are on strike today but they haven't just been picketing, this afternoon they have been doing volunteer work at the gardens of the Otago Community Hospice.

This is the second time in three weeks IRD staff have walked off the job, as a dispute between union and government departments continue.

We ask the panelists whether community work is a good public relations tactic, and whether strikers would garner more sympathy.
