Network company Chorus has scrapped a scheme that saw people from India working on voluntary unpaid contracts on its fibre optics programme in Nelson.

 

Chorus said it was "deeply uncomfortable" with the initiative, under which three men were brought in on the one-month contracts by a company sub-contracted to Universal Communications Group (UCG); Chorus' service company in Nelson.
