The Maoriland Worker, later called The Standard, was a leading New Zealand labour journal of the early 20th century.

It was launched in 1910 by the Shearers' Union and was initially published monthly (Frank Langstone was involved).[1] The newspaper was produced in Christchurch for a short period, with Ettie Rout and Alexander Wildey prominent[2]. It was soon taken over by the New Zealand Federation of Labour and became the official organ of the federation.[3]

The journal ceased publication in 1960. At the time it was called The Standard, and was published weekly.
