Meat inspectors have a fair claim for 5%

22 February 2006

Meat inspectors have a fair claim for 5% too says CTU

"The Council of Trade Unions is supporting meat inspectors who began industrial action today in their campaign for 5%," said Ross Wilson, Council of Trade Unions President.

Over 750 meat inspectors, members of the Public Service Association, are only fulfilling mandatory meat inspection duties for a week from today in support of their pay claim to Asure New Zealand, a State Owned Enterprise.

"These workers perform an important role with international significance, as much of the meat they inspect is for our export markets," said Ross Wilson.

"Asure New Zealand should reconsider their pay offer, and meet the reasonable claim of 5% that these meat inspectors are going for," said Ross Wilson.
