Air New Zealand workers want a share of the pie

August 28, 2003

Media Release

Air New Zealand workers want a share of the pie

Workers at Air New Zealand who agreed to forego pay rises when the airline was in trouble say that today’s profit announcement is good news for the coming round of pay talks.

Air New Zealand today announced an operating result of $220.3 million, up from $33.3m last year and a $280m loss in 2001.

EPMU national secretary Andrew Little said that workers had shared the hard times – and expected to share the good times too.

“The fact that this airline has had a $500m turnaround over two years demonstrates the commitment of this workforce,” he said.

“These workers haven’t had a pay rise for 18 months. They accepted the need to tighten belts when the airline faced problems, and the fact that it is now declaring a healthy profit will be a factor in shaping claims for the forthcoming bargaining round.”
