Make the Wellington Tramways Union part of the Manners Street Taskforce.

Petition details

The Wellington Tramways Union representing bus drivers since 1908 have been excluded by the Council from sitting on the Manners Street Taskforce. The bus company privatly owned since 1991 while sitting on the Taskforce has a conflict because of a commercial interest. This goes against the public interest including the health and safety of bus drivers and fellow Wellingtonians.
