NZ Post workers to consider new offer

Postal workers campaigning for a decent wage rise are about to consider a new pay offer.

Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union national secretary Andrew Little said that details of the offer, made on Friday night, were now being reported back to the union’s 5000 members at New Zealand Post.

“New Zealand Post has made a new offer, which we are taking back to the members,” he said.

“Meetings will be held over the next two or three weeks to discuss the offer, and we’ll see where we go from there.”

Postal workers who say that they are struggling to get by on their wages have been running a high-profile public campaign for a decent pay rise, with street rallies and marches by off-duty postal workers in many cities and towns.
