Radio NZ Dispute Not Just About Money

8th August 2001

"Today's stoppage by workers at RNZ is as much about the quality of management as it is about the terms and conditions of work for RNZ staff", said PSA National Secretary Richard Wagstaff.

"PSA members on the picket line have expressed strong feelings about the way they are managed and the fear they have that management will impose unpopular and unworkable changes in the workplace."

"Of particular concern are the changes proposed to hours of work provisions and rosters. These issues and others raise questions about how the work is done and the level of confidence members have in RNZ management to work with staff to find the right soutions".

"The PSA continues to advocate it's Partnership for Quality strategy which, if taken up at RNZ, will allow members a real opportunit to be involved in decision making, ensuring that when decsisons are made, they will include the wisdonm and experience of people who actually do the work".

"The concerns of PSA members are demonstrated both at the picket line and in the high staff turnover figures".

"A 1% pay offer has only compounded members feelings of being undervalued."

"Todays strike is due to end at 5.00 pm. Tomorrow the parties go back into medation in bid to settle. Failure to do so will result in more action", said Richard Wagstaff
