Work, wages revamp planned
Labour is planning a "fair workplace commission" to lift the lid on workers' pay and conditions ahead of a major revamp of industrial relations law.
The party's work and wages policy, to be unveiled by Labour leader David Cunliffe today, would in the first 100 days repeal recent National changes, including the 90 day "fire-at-will" probation rule. The minimum wage would be lifted to $15 in April and to about $16 later in the year.
