Ansett Promises New Contract Offer For Pilots

Ansett New Zealand Ltd has advised the pilots’ union, ALPA, that it has prepared a further contract offer for pilots. The offer will be forwarded to the union later this week.

“The revised offer follows a union request for a roll-over of the existing contract so negotiations could resume,” said Kevin Doddrell, Ansett Chief Executive.

“The company acknowledges that the past few weeks have been difficult for the company and its pilots. The offer we will forward later this week not only addresses the company’s commercial imperatives but also provides opportunities for pilots to increase their remuneration.

“Although the union also offered to withdraw strike action planned for tomorrow the offer was made on terms which were unacceptable to Ansett New Zealand. The union knew that we had already taken the economic loss of their strike notice. Ansett New Zealand won’t put its passengers through a second disruption by asking them to re-book yet again.

“I urge the union and its members to help us build a strong, competitive Ansett New Zealand, “ concluded Kevin Doddrell.
