Championing Value For Money From Every Tax Dollar

Petition: Pay back the wage subsidy

Pay it Back

Labour's trade union partners such as First Union and E Tū took hundreds of thousands in taxpayer money via the COVID-19 Wage Subsidy, despite having steady revenue streams from member dues. In fact, these unions were left with enough funds to run campaigns during the election to help re-elect the Government.

No union should profit, especially when financed by taxpayers, from a pandemic.

"I call on all trade unions to repay the COVID-19 Wage Subsidy."
