More than 280 workers at The Warehouse Group’s Auckland distribution centre are going on strike, Stuff reports. First Union organiser Hayley Courtney said there were concerns around health and safety, including implementation of the company’s proposed vaccination mandate and its recent decision to require immune-compromised people to return to work. However an HR Officer said the union’s claims around immune-compromised employees was “unfounded” and they were entitled to claim annual leave. Team members were also paid while they undergo rapid antigen testing, and if they needed to self-isolate.
