Work Stoppages: June 2004 quarter

13 October 2004 Number of Work Stoppages Remains Steady

Seven work stoppages ended in the June 2004 quarter, according to latest figures from Statistics New Zealand. The stoppages, consisting of five complete strikes, one partial strike and one lockout, involved 2,661 employees and resulted in the loss of an estimated $185,000 in wages and salaries. Six work stoppages ended in the preceding quarter.

For the year ending June 2004, 35 work stoppages involving 7,828 employees were recorded. The stoppages resulted in the loss of 4,361 person-days of work and an estimated $0.7 million in wages and salaries. This is the first time since June 1999 that the estimated annual loss in wages and salaries has dropped below $1 million. The manufacturing industry contributed 12 of the 35 work stoppages and had the highest estimated loss in wages and salaries. There were six work stoppages in health and community services, and five in education.

Twenty of the work stoppages recorded in the year ending June 2004 were in the private sector and 15 were in the public sector. The public sector had more employees involved in stoppages and a greater loss in estimated wages and salaries than the private sector. There was one ongoing stoppage at the end of the June 2004 quarter. Brian Pink Government Statistician
