The Herald reports:
Labour leader Andrew Little has indicated Labour will come up with its own version of trial period for new workers by merging aspects of the 90-day trial and a separate probationary period.
Mr Little caused confusion about his stance on the 90-day trial periods last week after he said Labour was looking at making changes rather than scrapping them altogether.
That was to a business conference.
Mr Little’s initial statement about the 90 day trials prompted unions to call for a ‘please explain.’ There was further confusion after a Labour Party member on the party’s Te Kaunihera Maori group tweeted that Mr Little had assured him Labour still planned to repeal it. Mr Little later told the Herald he had not said that but had discussed Labour’s intention to review it with the group.
And then says something quite different to a Labour group.
