Māori Party votes against tea break bill
Māori Party co-leader Te Ururoa Flavell is rejecting criticism of his party’s voting record on the Employment Relations Amendment Bill.
The party voted against the passing yesterday of the bill, which takes away the legal right to a tea break and allows employers to walk away from collective bargaining.
But Labour slammed it for voting with National on procedural issues, speeding up the bill’s passage through the house.
Mr Flavell says there was no point filibustering for the sake of it.
Te Ururoa Flavell says the way Labour’s Māori MPs are having a go at the Māori Party is just politics.
