Maritime Union Response To Facilitators Recommendations

Maritime Union Response To Facilitators Recommendations On Ports Of Auckland

Maritime Union of New Zealand media release FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Thursday 31 January 2013

The Maritime Union of New Zealand welcomes today the message from Ports of Auckland Limited (POAL) that it is willing to compromise, on the basis of the recommendations of the facilitator, to reach the settlement of a collective agreement at the Port.

Maritime Union of New Zealand National President Garry Parsloe says the Union considers the recommendations as a whole to be a useful basis to enter into what it hopes will be a successful round of negotiations with POAL, as is recommended by the Authority, to reach a settlement that is fair to all the parties.

He says the Maritime Union will be seeking to enter into negotiations as soon as possible.

"The Union is seeking the agreement of POAL to an all up meeting of members to enable members to consider the recommendations and any progress made in bargaining on them in the interim."

Details of the recommendations are confidential and the union will not be making any further comment on them.
