Why NZNO is supporting the Keep Our Assets campaign
One of NZNO’s strategic aims is “To oppose injustice and inequality wherever it impacts upon the health and wellbeing of New Zealanders.”
There is no doubt that the sale of state-owned assets will affect all New Zealanders; recent history clearly shows the impacts we can expect to see. Workers have been disadvantaged, not only as citizens or consumers of services provided by these privatised arms of government, but also as employees through unemployment and losses in wages and conditions during the privatisation process .
The Government has signalled its intention to sell New Zealand’s energy companies. NZNO believes asset sales will have a negative impact. Research shows that social inequity impacts negatively on health.
