- I whole heartedly agree the New Zealand Disability Strategy is vital to the well-being of the one-in-five New Zealanders who identify that they have a long-term impairment. By implementing the Strategy, Hawke's Bay will be a more inclusive society, eliminating the barriers to people with disabilities participating in and contributing to society.
The Strategy has the vision of a society that highly values the lives and continually enhances full participation of disabled people. It provides an enduring framework to ensure that government departments and agencies consider disabled people before making decisions.

Lynlee Aitcheson 's Reply
Thank you Justine for your contact and questions. Firstly like yourself I was a Union Delegate for The Prison Officers Association, another essential service like yours. We were locked out and the army brought in. Terms and Conditions were slashed and the media drummed up a culture of fear, when in fact we were conducting an organised go slow on some non essential duties. How often has that happened in NZ? we were locked out for about 4 days.
My point is after that experience my focus shifted more to Employment Relation Studies leaving Corrections in 2004 and going into business. I understand what a Good Employer is Justine and consider I have extensive knowledge of the Employment Relations Act 2000. Furthermore I know the havoc under staffed rosters can create and safety issues. Workplace safety is absolutely paramount, Not just lip service to the word health and safety but an ongoing activity involving all.
Without my team Telebell my business wouldn't exist, I believe the DHB is 6 million in the red from last year and I know someone must be responsible for the public purse but I subscript more to the idea of people before property.
