Clearly Defined Rules Which Ensures Number8 is Totally Different from ALL Other Unions
THE NUMBER 8 UNION NEEDS YOU
New Zealand Workers have been treated appallingly over the last two to three years. Workers have been discriminated against, had their employment contracts breached, been subjected to unsafe workplaces, coercion, bullying and to medical experimentation the likes of the world has never seen before.
Here at Number 8 we want to make sure this NEVER happens again!
The BIG (but ineffective) unions have failed dismally in their DUTY to protect workers. Workers PAY unions to support them which they didn’t, in fact they participated in the coercion and job loses!!
Lawyers have been slow or completely absent in helping workers. They too have failed
You – The Workers of New Zealand deserve justice. Here at Number 8 we are dedicated to making sure you get the justice you deserve. We are The People’s Union
WE NEED YOUR HELP US IN OUR MISSION
Liz and Forrest have been hosting Section 83 Q & A zooms for more than 12 months now, multiple times per week, through public holidays, xmas, birthdays and so on – ALL UNPAID. Almost 200 zooms!! Most of which have been over 2 hours each! That’s 400-500 hours of tirelessly answering the questions from distraught New Zealanders sacked from their jobs, many injured by the toxic injection in the process
Number 8 now has a dedicated team of advocates who are working hard our to support Number 8 Union members through their workplace mediations, MBIE mediations and ERA hearings as part of getting justice for workers they deserve
We have a team of unpaid volunteers working unseen in the background, carrying out multiple support functions so advocates can do their magic. They do go unseen but are vital to bring members the services they need and for N8 success.
The Number 8 website, built by a volunteer happy to lend a hand, will soon to have even more resources with the addition of “Case Law, Case Summaries and Commentary”. This is an exciting resource create by Liz, Erika and Robyn, which gives members the fast way to gain vital knowledge of successes through the courts and cases relevant to our path to justice
This all takes finances to support

These photographic memories of Wellington’s “Camp Freedom” and other actions throughout NZ serve as a perfect reminder of why we NEVER want to go back to those times, with the exception of Camp Freedom’s immense sense of community, friendship and a common goal of securing complete autonomy over our bodies, how we choose to live our lives and the freedom we are born with!
