Fletcher terminations have left us battling, trauma, stress, health issues, lost homes and financial hardship.

Auckland

We are a group of ex employees of Fletchers, 36 of us, that have been severely impacted by Fletchers Mandate policy around the vaccine. Fletchers created a policy that saw anyone who did not get a vaccine terminated. No exemptions were given, no individual risk assessments were done, no alternative employment was considered.

Redundancies were cancelled for some of our group who had loyally been working for Fletchers for over 20 years.

Those who had medical issues and who could not take the vaccine were told to seek ACC help if anything happened.

Many of our group have suffered huge trauma and ongoing effects of this decision. Many are still unemployed, some are still suffering health and stress issues and many have been impacted financially and lost houses, identity, live in temporary accommodation etc.

We are taking our case to the ERA but we are coming against huge delays and roadblocks from the Goliath that is Fletchers. We have been battling for 18 months now with no end in sight. They have copious amounts of money to throw against us, whilst their CEO made over $6m in 2021 and the company profits were unprecedented and huge for 2021. They terminated all non vaccinated employees and then reversed the mandate 4 weeks later.

Please help us with our ongoing legal costs to see justice done.

Thank you

Use of funds

We will be using the money to help fund our legal battle against Fletchers so that we can continue to seek the justice we need.

Employment court here we come.  2 November 2023

The ERA, determined that FB were not to be added to our Personal grievances as a third party as none of us had an actual employment contract with FB, but instead had employment contracts with their subsidiaries. This was despite our affidavits showing evidence that it was Fletcher Building head office who dictated the mandates to their subsidiaries and that the CEO even went on TV and the media claiming all FB employees were to be mandated. The ERA split hairs and ignored all our evidence and found that FB had nothing to do with the mandate and were not to be added as a third party.

Also, the ERA decided that those who claimed discrimination on Religious or medical reasons, did not do so within the 90 days required when filing a Personal grievance. This despite the fact that all of us brought up these points with emails and meetings before termination and filed our reasons in the same Personal grievances claim, within 30 days of termination. We all sent in affidavits and attached our evidence that we had done this. This too was ignored and was said that because FB had failed to see our Personal grievance, (got lost in the post and emails apparently by Fletchers) until after the 90 days the religious and medical grounds were not to be added to damages.

We are appealing both decisions in the Employment Court. If this is not appealed then FB will be able to dictate anything to subsidiaries without recourse to employees of challenging future mandates. Justice needs to be served, not only for us but for future employees & the law.
