To all Unite members and supporters,
On Saturday May 3 from 10-4.00pm the Living Wage Movement will hold a West Fest for a Living Wage at Corban Estate, Henderson, Auckland to give workers in West Auckland an opportunity to enjoy a day out with their families. This involves free
• organised games, sports, bouncy castle and more…
• Music and entertainment
• Giveaways, spot prizes, stall bingo
• A competition to paint a NZ flag with great prizes for the winner
This is an opportunity for communities to
• Find out about the Living Wage
• Talk about the services in the local community
• Connect to other local organisations that are supporting local communities and get access to information
• Spend time together and strengthen the relationships that make our communities vibrant, liveable and so much more.
We know income inequality impacts on all social indicators of community well-being so we also think it’s important our communities talk to our political leaders in election and can raise the questions they have about well-being in West Auckland.
Local government leaders will answer questions about how they will address well-being in their local communities at 11.30-12.00noon. The panel will include: Deputy Mayor, Penny Hulse and Local Board leaders, Catherine Farmer, Sandra Coney and Shane Henderson.
Political party leaders will form a panel at 1.00-1.30pm to discuss how their policies will foster community well-being and present are:
• Leader of the Labour Party, David Cunliffe
• Leader of the NZ First party, Winston Peters
• Leader of the Green Party, Russel Norman
Others yet to be confirmed – this political conversation invites only those parties currently in Parliament.
