Morning Report hit by action

Morning Report hit by action

Staff at Radio New Zealand are off the job again this morning as their industrial dispute deepens.

Members of the Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union and the Public Service Association walked out at 7am, taking the flagship Morning Report programme off the air for the third time.

Workers are now picketing the state broadcaster’s head office on The Terrace in Wellington.

EPMU national secretary Andrew Little said that workers were disappointed that RNZ managers were not even talking to them.

“It appears that they don’t care whether this dispute is settled or not,” he said.

“The only communication between the unions and RNZ managers has come at the unions’ initiative. Their handling of this dispute has been lackadaisical, to say the least.”

The workers are seeking a five per cent pay rise. They have been offered three per cent. They will return to work at 9am.
