RNZ – 15/06/2022
Gloriavale has sought a High Court injunction forcing Westland Milk to continue collecting milk from the community’s dairy farms.
Westland Milk announced it would stop collecting milk from the the reclusive West Coast Christian sect’s farms after the Employment Court ruled members of the community who worked up to 70 hours a week were not volunteers.
Collection was set to end on Monday to coincide with the end of the milking season
In a statement, a spokesperson for Westland Milk confirmed Gloriavale’s Canaan Farming Dairy Ltd had filed an application for an interim injunction against Westland.
