CentrePort Wellington signs Collective Agreement with Unions
CentrePort Wellington has signed a two-year Collective Agreement with the Maritime Union of New Zealand Inc, the Rail and Maritime Transport Union Inc and the Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union Inc.
This time a two year contract has been signed with the Unions, as opposed to the previous one-year term. The agreement covers approximately 120 employees at CentrePort Wellington.
Meetings began with the three unions in October last year, and the Collective Agreement was ratified in February and officially signed on February 22.
“Regular and open dialogue with the Unions has been the key to successful negotiations,” says Chief Executive of CentrePort Wellington Liz Ward, who is delighted with the speedy outcome. “We are looking forward to working with the unions and their members over the coming months to grow our integrated logistics business.”
