Marlborough vineyard workers encouraged to report employment breaches

It is "disappointing" that some companies within the Marlborough wine industry continue to use non-compliant contracting businesses, a Labour Inspectorate spokesman says. The comments follow a Blenheim woman's claims that 13 workers were left more than $10,000 out of pocket after an agreement with a contractor fell through. Some of the workers were struggling to pay for food and rent after a contractor defaulted on a payment for 50.5 hours of work in January, the woman said.
