Welcome - Komiti Pasefika
Komiti Pasefika was started in the early 70s and 80s by a passionate group of activists working for the Northern Distribution Union. Activists and leaders like Bill Andersen and Mike Jackson, who are founders of National Distribution Union, and Pacific leaders like Linda Holt, Sa Leutele, Isaac Otineru and Mark Muller.
With the support of the National Distribution Union, and Unions nationwide, Pacific people have a vehicle to express their collective voice.
The principles of the Komiti Pasefika are:
- To promote pacific island workers and people in their home, their community, their workplace and in their Union.
- To provide training and education to our pacific people.
- To promote diversity, the pacific culture, and pacific way in our community.
- To promote our Union values and what it means to be Union.
We provide a voice for the pacific island community - for example we support Pasefika at Western Springs, Auckland, where we have a stall every year, and also in Wellington at Cannon's Creek festivals.
Most popular are the pacific island gatherings at the beach and the sports day held every year. Congratulations to Service and Food Workers Union for wining last year's sports day!
