Jason Pearce started this petition to Michael Wood (inister of Transport and Minister for Workplace Relations and Safety)

Every year many New Zealanders miss out on a minimum of four public holidays leave that the rest of New Zealand enjoy.

Some years that can extend to as much as 8 days, if Christmas/New Year, Waitangi and Anzac Day fall on what was the traditional New Zealand weekend of Saturday/Sunday.

If you are unlucky enough to have a Tuesday to Saturday working week, or rostered Monday off, you simply miss out on public holidays others enjoy.

It is not fair that this group of New Zealanders don’t enjoy the same allowance of paid holiday leave that the rest of the workforce enjoys.

This year The Holidays Act is under review. Yet again, there are no proposals to give All New Zealanders access to public holidays. The Government is ignoring people who miss out on public holidays and basically saying they aren’t valued or deserving of what most in the workplace receive.

It’s time for ALL New Zealanders to get the same amount of public holidays leave.

Show support for the Hairdressers, Beauty Therapists, Hospitality Workers, Media, Retail Workers, and others in New Zealand, who aren’t getting the holiday leave enjoyed by most in New Zealand. They look after you, now it’s time for you to look after them. 

Please sign this petition to give everybody who works in New Zealand the same allowance of Public Holiday Leave. Help us push for change and bring fairness to all.

How would you feel if you missed out on long weekends/public holidays, whilst everyone else was enjoy theirs. Please show your support and share the word.

It is simply not fair that so many miss out on these public holidays and no government has ever moved to change this and make it fair for all.
