Skycity Employees Assocation of Unite Union is disappointed to learn via media that the Skycity Company is pulling out of the Pride Parade.
SEA-Unite will be marching in solidarity with LGBT workers “no matter what”, says SEA-Unite convenor Joe Carolan.
“We welcome the return of campaigning politics against all forms of discrimination and oppression to an event that celebrates Stonewall, the original LGBT rebellion against police brutality in New York in 1969.
“In recent years, this radical message has been pinkwashed out of existence by corporate dominance. Workers are finding our confidence again in New Zealand and we will be marching in solidarity with our gay, lesbian, trans and queer comrades until we all are free and liberated.”
