Employment: Paying Charter Crews Properly Could Undermine Maori Fishing Assets

"The policy change currently under consideration to increase the wages on foreign charter vessels will threaten the viability of the Maori fishing industry and undermine the gains by tangata whenua" says Tariana Turia... The Maori Party supports the call from Raukura Moana Fisheries, Ngati Kahungunu and Aotearoa Fisheries for the Government to urgently reconsider their proposals to impose new and higher wage rates for crew on foreign charter vessels.

    Infrastructure: Toll, Ontrack Head For Rail System Train Wreck

    The Government needs to make it clear that it will not be blackmailed by rail operator Toll New Zealand, said New Zealand First transport spokesman Peter Brown. Mr Brown’s comments follow reports that Toll is threatening to shut down ‘large chunks’ of New Zealand’s rail network and clog major highways with trucked freight if Ontrack, the Government-run owner of the rail tracks, increases Toll’s access fees.
