Stagecoach Media Release

Media Release

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.

No further statement will be made until the conclusion of this process.
