Drinking Liberally…

Ok so this is a couple of days old, but I just thought I would mention Drinking Liberally Auckland that was held last Wednesday at the London Bar, Wellesley Street. It was a great seeing our old colleagues and allies from the liberal left, having a brew…

Anyway, this month’s speaker was Laila Harre, former MP, ex-Alliance Leader and current National Secretary of the NDU (and resident of the Te Atatu electorate :P). Laila gave us an excellent analysis of the current state of Industrial Relations and the union movement within New Zealand, particularly within the context of a General Election this year – definitely food for thought for those of us on the left concerned about workers’ rights and the role of the institution of organised labour in society at large.
