Solid support on the doorsteps of Dunedin yesterday for the right for Dunedin’s Hillside workshops to bid for the work to build Auckland’s electric trains. Even people who identified as National Party voters signed the railworkers’ petition.
Steven Joyce made a mistake this week when he dismissed the capability of NZ’s rail workers to build locos and units for Auckland.
NZers do have faith in Kiwi skills and Kiwi ingenuity. This government doesn’t and they aren’t interested in creating Kiwi jobs.
If you support the railworkers at Hillside and the Hutt to get this work, download the petition here, print and get as many signatures as you can.
