Australia fought alongside the Kiwis to forge the Anzac spirit. We even have a Trans Tasman Partnership founded upon reciprocal rights and kinship. But did you know Australians don’t treat New Zealanders with the same respect Australians receive in New Zealand?

This situation is unfair and we need to change it. So National Union of Workers (NUW) members moved an amendment about justice for immigrants from New Zealand living in Australia at Labor’s 47th National Conference.
