This is a victory for the good guys,” International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) President Paddy Crumlin commented.“There were rallies in Australia and around the globe including outside NZ embassies and consulates in support of the MUNZ struggle and it’s terrific that this dispute has finally been resolved,” MUA Deputy National Secretary Mick Doleman said.Image: MUAlast_img
