Stagecoach and Workers Make Progress


Stagecoach Auckland and the Stagecoach Combined Unions have been in mediation over the last two weeks.

Good progress has been made on the remaining non-monetary issues, however the parties have remained some distance apart on the term and the pay rates.

In an endeavour to achieve a settlement based on a pay rate of $16 as sought by the Combined Unions, the mediator, Keith Handley, has suggested a new concept based on the following:

  • A two year term
  • A top pay rate of $16.00
  • A lump sum payment
  • Changes in the way in which overtime is paid.
  • Because this is a new approach it will require a comprehensive consultation process with employees. The parties have agreed to a timetable for this process which will involve a presentation from both management and union representatives.

    PLEASE NOTE

    THERE WILL BE NO DISRUPTION TO ANY STAGECOACH BUS SERVICES
