Thank you Matt for your support & for bringing awareness to this. There are ALOT of New Zealanders who think that when the NZDF group won the last case, that they were straight back to work. That wasn’t the case. These group members were refused their roles back, most of them were given very little, or no support or wellbeing checks & were simply ignored & put to the side. My husband is one of the group members. He was told on Friday, he would finally be able to come to work this week. After 9 months of being shut out of his job, having been refused entry to camps & removed from communication within his unit. It’s absolutely appalling how most of the people in the group have been treated, over this year. So much damage has been done. Some of them are back at work already, with conditions. Others are still facing potential discharge because of this unnecessary internal requirement, set by the CDF.
I’m so proud of every one of the group members. We’ve met lots of them, and have built wonderful friendships with them They’re incredibly strong people, with integrity & heart. Watching hubby get into his dress uniform yesterday for the first time this year, was emotional. So proud of them all. They’re all standing firm in their truth & beliefs
