PSA Media Release

Mediation ends meat inspectors' industrial action

Meat inspectors who are members of the Public Service Association and employed by State Owned Enterprise, Asure New Zealand have agreed to end their industrial action as a result of a proposed settlement from their employer reached after two days of mediation.

"We are pleased that a proposed settlement that the union negotiating team can recommend to members has been achieved," said Jeff Osborne. PSA Assistant Secretary.

All notices of industrial action at meat processing plants throughout New Zealand will be withdrawn today.

"The work to rule industrial action has been successful at showing the employer that our members are serious about a decent pay deal."

"We will now go through the process of holding union meetings to seek endorsement from our members to settle the collective agreement."

"We are grateful for the assistance of the Department of Labour's mediation service in resolving the dispute," said Jeff Osborne. "It was useful to have an independent person assisting the parties in resolving our differences."

The PSA expects the ratification process to take about two weeks.
