Wellington Bunnings workers go on strike

5:33 pm on 7 November 2015

Workers from Wellington's Bunnings stores have been protesting today in a continuing dispute over changes to their rosters.

About 30 staff from Porirua, Lyall Bay and Naenae picketed outside the Porirua store for an hour this morning.

First union organiser Richie Morris said strike action had been going on around the country for several weeks as workers tried to get the message across that they did not want Bunnings to be able to unilaterally change their work hours.

Mr Morris said talks between the union and Bunnings were due to resume next week.
