Here is the message we received from Helen Kelly, President of the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions:
Following up my message to you about our communication with the US Embassy about the Employee Free Choice Act, I have checked with our Operations Officer for their response (see below):
“John Robertson from the American Embassy rang with a response from David Keegan, US Embassy to your letter. He suggests that the NZCTU find the sponsor of the Bill and direct your question to them. If one does an Internet Search e.g. using Google, Library of Congress Thomas website, it will locate the bill in question and relevant sponsor information”
Not very helpful from the Embassy I would have to say!! I have not yet drafted a letter to relevant senators but I can do so if you believe that it would be helpful.
