Press Release: Federated Farmers
Federated Farmers today lashed out at the extra compliance
costs associated with the Employment Relations Bill, quoting
the costs associated with good faith bargaining, paid union
meetings, education leave and unfair bargaining as examples.
The federation estimates that union meetings alone will
cost the meat industry at least $1m in wages per year. Paid
education leave will add even more costs.
