Media are encouraged to attend this Wellington event. Taking place the day after the CTU - Government forum, which is closed to media, it will address similar issues and have members of the earlier event’s panel speaking. This is an opportunity to talk to workers, politicians and industry stakeholders about a hidden crisis hurting many New Zealanders and get an advance idea of government intentions in this area.

Also, there will be free drinks.

Fighting Fatigue - How can shift workers improve our lives?

A decade after Pike River, far too many workers are hurt or killed on the job. We work shifts that exhaust us. We burn out and leave professions we care about to preserve our health.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Join us at PSA House (11 Aurora Tce) on August 20, between 5.30 and 7pm, to hear ordinary working people tell our stories and discuss potential solutions.

Speaking on the panel will be a mental health nurse, a railway worker, a bus driver and a probations officer.

Labour MP Marja Lubcek and Greens MP Jan Logie will share with us what the government is doing to help, and WorkSafeReps will announce new training programmes that empower us to help ourselves.

Signs will be on the door, and volunteers present to let you into the building and direct you to the event on the sixth floor.
