Statement Re: Maritime Union

Statement from Progressive Enterprises Ltd

Re: Maritime Union

Most Progressive Enterprises products are imported by our suppliers. Any interference with the transfer of those goods will impact on those suppliers directly.

The shipments are consolidated for all customers in New Zealand, not just our supermarkets. The Maritime Union’s proposed action would therefore impact on a huge number of other retailers in this country.

We believe this action would be unlawful, but that issue would need to addressed by the suppliers concerned.

Any disruption to incoming goods starts to become a very serious matter for the nation when third parties not involved in industrial action are unlawfully impeded in their rights to go about their daily business.

Were this action to proceed we would regard it as irresponsible.
