Fast food worker’s lieu day victory

Hornby

Wendy’s

employee

gets win for

hospo staff

• By Emily O’Connell

A HORNBY woman has won a

three-year battle with a fast food

company to ensure employees

across the country get their days

in lieu.

Wendy’s, which has 23 outlets

in New Zealand, including one

in Hereford St and in Hornby,

has breached two sections of the

Holidays Act 2003.

Wendy’s employee Rose

Williams went to the Ministry

of Business, Innovation and

Employment three years ago

with the lieu day issue after she

had been working at the Hornby

restaurant for a year.

Mrs Williams said Wendy’s

staff were not being given a lieu

day after working on a public

holiday. She told Western News

it feels “pretty good” to win the

case.

Unite Union, of which

Mrs Williams is a delegate,

has estimated it would cost

Wendy’s $1.6 million to pay back

employees’ leiu days.

RIGHTS: Rose Williams has won a three-year battle against Wendy’s to give employees days in

lieu when they work a public holiday.

Kim Baldwin found Wendy’s

breached section 56 and 60 of the

Holidays Act.

Section 56 says an alternative

holiday must be provided to

an employee who works on a

public holiday if that day would

otherwise have been a working

day for them.

Section 60 sets out how those

employees should be paid for the

alternative holiday.

Wendy’s has been ordered

to comply with the two

sections, conduct a review of its

restaurants and keep records of

staff contacted, rosters and leave.

It has been ordered to give

all past and present employees

from the Hornby and Dunedin

restaurants their alternative

holidays, or the equivalent

pay since the restaurants were

opened.

Wendy’s has also been ordered

to do the same for all other

restaurants across the country

backdated to July 1, 2012.

Unite Union national secretary

Gerard Hehir said it was “very

happy” with the result.

“We think it has significance

beyond our dispute with

Wendy’s actually,” he said.

Mr Hehir said it’s hard to

establish what would be a

person’s normal working day

in hospitality because of their

variable shift work.

“The problem we have with

Wendy’s is they said no-one was

entitled to one [an alternative

holiday] at all, because hours

changed occasionally,” Mr Hehir

said.

He admired how tenacious

Mrs Williams was throughout

the trial. Mrs Williams left a job

at Countdown to raise her son

Josh after her husband Murray

died in a speedway crash 14 years

ago. She said her late husband

was racing a sidecar at Ruapuna

Speedway when he crashed and

died instantly.

She started working at

Hornby Wendy’s four years

ago.

She said public holidays are the

restaurant’s busiest days and it

wasn’t fair to not get a day in lieu

for working them.

She plans to continue

working at Wendy’s and has not

encountered any problems while

standing up for her rights.

Wendy’s head office could not

respond to Western News before

deadline yesterday.

WHAT A terrific fight Rose Williams (page

1) had put up against fast food giant Wendy’s.

Her battle will see Wendy’s staff across New

Zealand backpaid for owed days in lieu.

Rose took her case Ministry of Business,

Innovation and Employment claiming Wendy’s were not honouring

their lieu day committments.

And she’s won. It will mean Wendy’s staff across the country will

share in about $1.6 million in owed pay.

Rose is no stranger to adversity – her husband Murray was killed

in a speedway crash, and she’s had to work hard to keep her

household going. Great stuff Rose.

We’ve refreshed our masthead and page 2, and there’s more

changes in the wind. I’ll keep to you posted.

Wigram street may get truck ban

• By Emily O’Connell

AFTER MONTHS of being

woken by passing trucks in

the early hours, Lodestar Ave

residents are hopeful a new

citywide bylaw will give them

some peace and quiet.

The Traffic and Parking Bylaw

2017, which will give the city

council the

ability to restrict

heavy vehicles

on certain roads,

was approved by

councillors on

Thursday.

Now Halswell

Ward city

Anne

Galloway

councillor

Anne Galloway

is pushing for

heavy vehicle

restrictions to be placed on

Lodestar Ave.

She said the restriction would

be put on the avenue in mid-2018

if city council staff approved it.

“Such a decision would be

the outcome of a technical

assessment and public

consultation, which has not yet

occurred,” Cr Galloway said.

A resident at Lady Wigram

Retirement Village on Lodestar

Ave was very pleased it had been

approved.

NOISY: Large container trucks on Lodestar Ave in Wigram.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

“We are waiting in hope,” he

said. On Thursday, Cr Galloway

asked a city council staff member

whether the new bylaw would be

applicable to Lodestar Ave.

He said it would have to assess

each case individually.

“An operational policy will

need to be developed to support

the bylaw,” he said.

Cr Galloway said the timing

for the policy hadn’t been

determined.

“Such a policy would contain

a number of conditions where

restrictions can be considered,

such as the number and type of

heavy vehicles using the street,”

she said.

Cr Galloway said she’s pleased

the city council will now have the

tools it needs to address speed

and heavy vehicle traffic issues.

She said it will make residential

streets safer for walking and

biking.

Wigram MP Megan Woods

said it was a good first step.

“Now we have to work to

finalise the process, consult with

local people and hopefully get the

bylaw applied to Lodestar Ave,”

Dr Woods said.

Lady Wigram Retirement

Village residents say they are

often woken at 4.30am. They

have been lobbying for bylaw to

ban trucks on Lodestar Ave since

April when they met with Cr

Galloway and Dr Woods.

For many workers, Lodestar

Ave is a short cut to work sites in

the area.

The Traffic and Parking Bylaw

2017 will come into effect from

March 1.

I manage tenancies and

properties in the Broomfield and

up with an idea to engage with

parents and children in that part

of the city.

While there appeared to be a

lot on offer for over 60s in the

area, I wasn’t able to find much

in terms of support and socialising

for parents and carers of

Community development

worker Tracey Buunk and I got

together earlier in the year to

begin a local playgroup named

Tea and Tots.

The group is currently held

on the last Thursday of every

month at 126 on the Corner (125

Hei Hei Rd), which is owned by

Hei Hei Broomfield Community

Trust. The venue offers all sort

of weekly events to get the community

engaging.

Tea and Tots gives children a

chance to play and be creative in

a safe environment while parents

are meeting and supporting

other parents in the community.

Since we began in August, ABC

Hei Hei are onboard with us.

While it got off to a slow start,

we now have about eight under

5s and several parents from the

community attend regularly.

The monthly gatherings have

become more popular as word

has spread. We intend to hold

the playgroup more often in 2018

and are looking for volunteers to

make this possible.

The aim of tea and Tots is to

have our community mixing,

meeting, supporting and having

fun with one another.

While this will involve Housing

aim is to extend the invitation to

the wider community as well.

Meeting to discuss Denton Park’s future

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Emily O’Connell

DENTON PARK could be a step

closer to becoming the site of

the controversial $35.7 million

Hornby mega centre.

Tonight the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

will discuss reclassifying part

of the park from a recreation

reserve to a local purpose (community

buildings) reserve.

The board will also discuss

amending the Denton Park management

plan to accommodate

the Hornby Library, Customer

Services and South West Leisure

Centre and when it should put

the reclassification out for public

consultation.

Community board deputy

chairwoman Helen Broughton

said the board may “have little

option but to pass it [the removal

of the reserve classification], as

it’s been delegated by the city

council.”

The Hornby Rugby Football

Club has sent a letter to the

community board stating its

objection to the new centre being

at Denton Park.

The club does not want to

break its lease, which runs until

2039, and it is concerned about

additional traffic in the area.

“It represents trying to put an

elephant in a fish bowl,” the letter

said.

Save Denton Park group chairman

Mark Peters told Western

News it has been declined an opportunity

to make a deputation

at tonight’s meeting.

He said the group was annoyed

by this and it wants the

city council “to sit up and listen

and stop taking bad advice from

their staff”.

He said a better time for the

group to speak would be at the

reclassification hearing.

Meanwhile, Mr Mora would

like to see the city council do

more to remediate Kyle Park and

then reconsider it as an option

for the new centre.

City council operations

manager neighbourhood and

sports park, Al Hardy, said

garden areas were fenced off

permanently two years ago at

Kyle Park.

“The areas have been

mulched to ensure the amenity

of the park is retained whilst

containing the risk. The cost of

the fencing was $138,237,” he

said.

Mr Mora said it’s the first time

he has heard the fence would be

permanent.

Kyle Park will host the BMX

New Zealand South Island titles

in mid January.

Christchurch City BMX Club

treasurer Peter Cochrane said

spectators won’t have much

space to view the races due to the

fence.

Mr Hardy said the area behind

the fence has always been an

amenity and woodland garden

area and the fence didn’t reduce

“the actual space available for

recreation purposes”.

Mr Mora said the fenced off

area is “an absolute mess” and is

going to be a fire risk in summer.

But Mr Hardy said the area

behind the fence is maintained

on an “as required basis in order

to minimise disturbance to the

soil”.

Marketing skills on the line for

Villa Maria entrepreneurs

• By Emily O’Connell

GOLDFISH, BATH bombs and

hot chocolate reindeer were

among the items on sale at Villa

Maria College’s year 10 market

day on Wednesday.

Students were placed in teams

of two or three with one of their

aims being to produce a product or

service to sell on a market day.

The course is part of the year 10

technology enterprise half-year

module.

Villa students have spent

time learning about business

marketing skills like meeting a

need or opportunity, researching

ideas that fit a particular target

market and adding value to an

existing product.

They also learnt about finance,

costing, advertising, promotion

and selling – all in the hope of

making a small profit if successful

with their sales.

The course aims to give students

an opportunity to self-manage,

work in teams, communicate and

meet deadlines.

Goods such as succulent planters,

pamper packs, fluffy snow,

stress balls, Christmas decorations,

shower jellies, fun soap were

also up for sale.

A small percentage of each

group’s earnings, which Villa

Maria is considering as tax, will

be given to a charity of the class’

choice.

A COMBINATION of

community groups are helping

low decile pupils get the school

camp experience.

Year 5 and 6 pupils at Linwood

North School recently went on

camp to Living Springs with 50

per cent of their fees paid for.

The Aorangi Sponsorship

Programme coupled with Mitre

10 and Christchurch Girls’ High

School’s Interact group raised

funds to get the pupils to the

camp.

The sponsorship programme

was set up last year and aims to

get underprivileged children an

outdoor education experience.

Linwood North School principal

Sandra Smith said it’s not

common for her pupils to go to

camp and they are only able to if

community funding is available.

“The children that went had

an amazing time. The thing that

stood out for the teachers was

that the children who usually

find school challenging, really

shone and blossomed at camp

and took on the challenges,” said

Ms Smith.

Living Springs chief executive

Denis Aldridge said 50 per cent

of schools going to the camp are

decile 9 and 10.

Schools that are decile 1, 2, 3

and 4 combined only make up 16

per cent. “That’s the very schools

who need to be here,” said Mr

Aldridge.

Some “business clusters” are

now sticking with the schools

long-term and sponsoring

camps every year, said Mr

Aldridge.

Last year, six low decile schools

were able to attend the camp

from community sponsorship.

The programme is aiming for

eight schools next year.

The camps are based on

outdoor adventure learning

programmes which include low

rope courses, tree climbing, farm

visits and biking.

“It gets them out of their

comfort zone, gets them working

together and gets them in a

wholesome green environment,”

said Mr Aldridge.

Shops bursting with

festive gift ideas

The countdown to the big day is well underway, so making

up the Christmas gift list will now be a top priority… if you

haven’t already done so.

Finding those special gifts and stocking

fillers as well as the Christmas treats for

the table is so easy at our city’s malls and

shopping centres, where the shops are

bursting with festive merchandise.

Every woman likes to receive bodypampering

gifts, and there is a huge

selection of these priced to suit all budgets

at the many pharmacies and gift shops

around the city. Perfume is another

favourite and again there is a wide

selection to choose from, ranging from

exciting new releases to the well-known

fragrances that have stood the test of time.

Lingerie, jewellery, fashion accessories,

homewares and decor items – there’s no

end to the ideas for the women on the list.

The men are equally well catered for, from

the sophisticated metro-male boyfriends,

to the car-crazy brothers and the DIY

enthusiast and keen gardener husbands

and dads. Choose from clothing, books,

tools, personal grooming items and

gadgets to put a smile on their face on

Christmas morning.

Speaking of smiles, nothing gives families

more joy than seeing the excitement

of the children opening their presents.

Whether they are delivered by Santa or

snuck under the tree by mum and dad,

the cuddly toys, games, dolls and building

blocks, the candy canes, toy trucks and

pretty dresses currently filling the shops

will bring squeals of sheer happiness from

the smallest family members.

The tweens and teens usually have their

own ideas about what they want for

Christmas, so the gift cards offered by a

wide range of retailers are the perfect way

to please.

Creative wrapping

adds intrigue to gifts

Most of the malls offer a free gift-wrapping service, which

is a great help at this busy time, but for those who prefer

to wrap their own here are a few ideas to make gifts look

unique and exciting.

The first tip to make the job easier and

the wrapping look more professional is to

do the task on a flat surface – a table or a

hard floor.

Recycling has become an important

aspect of modern-day life, and that’s easy

to do with gift-wrapping. For example,

those brown paper bags you have put

aside are ideal, especially for odd-shaped

gifts. To give them a Christmassy look,

you could glue on those left-over pieces

of wrapping paper from last year that are

too small to use, and add a candy cane or

chocolate with the gift tag.

Another quirky idea is to wrap your gifts

in fabric. You could cut up a garment you

no longer wear, or look out those left over

pieces from curtains or clothing you have

made. Tie them up with fabric ribbon to

complete the look.

in Western News

Using newspaper or cardboard boxes as

wrapping is another recycling idea, and

you could add a festive look by tying

them with Christmas ribbon.

For long-shaped gifts, why not wrap them

to look like a Christmas cracker. Place a

tube of cardboard around the item, then

put it inside a sheet of wrapping paper,

secure it with tape then scrunch up the

ends like a cracker and tie them off with

coloured ribbon.

Kitchen foil is another wrapping option.

Being silver and shiny it already has a

festive look, which you could enhance

with bright-coloured ribbon.

Make a container, such as a jar, tin or

tray one part of the gift. Complete it with

chocolates, nuts or biscuits and wrap the

gift in clear cellophane tied with brightcoloured

ribbon.

Rangi Ruru student part

of world champion team

WESTERN NEWS

RANGI RURU Girls’ student

Leah Zydenbos helped the

New Zealand mounted games

under-17 team win a World

Championship in Auckland.

She was up against some of the

world’s leading equestrians at the

event named Equitana.

Teams from Australia, Ireland,

and England held the next top

spots in the competition.

Rangi Ruru director of

equestrian Pippa Young said it

was a tough ride for the team

with Leah, riding her borrowed

mount Cheeky.

“It was very tense in the final

particularly, with two eliminations

and a tie-breaker in the

very last game of the competition,”

she said.

“The New Zealand under-17

team has been amazing over

these few days. Leah and her

teammates worked so hard to

triumph over the riders from all

the other countries, with Australia,

Ireland and England being

particularly strong.”

Ms Young said Leah really

excelled at the event.

“She has been outstanding; an

exceptional team member.

“Her parents Sue and Rick,

and brother Luke – all mounted

games competitors themselves –

are understandably very proud of

their daughter too.”

Leah was a key part of the

school’s success at the South

Island Schools’ Mounted Games

held at the Ellesmere Showgrounds

in late April this year.

She and Lily Buckley won the

South Island interschools competition.

Leah has also excelled in a

number of other competitions,

PREPARATION: Christchurch Girls’ High players train for the

upcoming sevens tournament in Auckland on Thursday.

Schools ready for national

sevens competition

• By Andrew King

ST BEDE’S, Christchurch Girls’

High and St Margaret’s will each

take to the field on Thursday to

compete at the Condor Sevens in

Auckland.

All three qualified for the

tournament by making the final

in their regional competition.

CGHS beat St Margaret’s in the

girls final while St Bede’s were

beaten by Timaru Boys’ High.

The competition runs until

Sunday and features 32 boys

teams and 24 girls teams. It has

been running since 1986.

St Bede’s had a training session

with the Canterbury men’s side

on Thursday and coach Daniel

Winchester said they were looking

forward to getting stuck into

their opponents.

“We are expecting to come up

against some physical sides, but

our fitness will come through.

We have some boys that can expose

the opposition,” he said.

CGHS coach Jamie Livingstone

said they are aiming to play an

exciting brand of sevens to throw

their North Island counterparts

off.

“We have plenty of experience

in the team with half of them

playing in their second or third

tournament,” she said.

Livingstone said they will aim

to win all three pool games and

from there “anything can happen”.

The last time a South Island

team won the tournament was in

2003, when Aranui High School

– now Haeata Community Campus

– beat Auckland’s De La Salle

College.
