A number of high-profile industrial struggles are unfolding in New Zealand.

About 1500 aged care workers, members of the Service and Food Workers
Union, are taking part in rolling strikes against a 1% pay rise offer.
About 750 meat workers have been locked out by their employer AFFCO and
about 1250 workers are involved in rolling stoppages in solidarity.
Striking Auckland waterside workers are also into their fourth week on the
picket line.
