Seventy eight home support workers, who undertook a series of intermittent strikes, face two weeks without pay after Lifewise issued them a lockout notice, Stuff reports. The employees are members of E tū union, and have been pushing for more guaranteed hours, plus increased sick and bereavement leave, for more than 18 months. Meanwhile, a Lifewise representative said that the lockout notices were issued because no progress has been made in the bargaining since late 2020.
