Richmond and NMDHB Sleepovers All the work between the Employer and NUPE has now been completed. NUPE can do no more to expedite payment. It is now a matter for the employer and the Crown to settle.
If you are expecting a payment make sure your (or ex) employer has your correct bank details.
Next EXEC meeting  on 4 March at 5.30pm.


We’ve moved office and can now be found next door to the offices we shared with Kerr Real Estate since the big EQ Day. Our physical address is 520 Cranford St but our postal address is the same as pre-earthquake days
