Probation Workers Back On The Job
After urgent meetings last night between PSA and CPS representatives, suspended probation officers will be reinstated and all other staff will return to work today.
PSA National Secretary Richard Wagstaff said that “we have negotiated a proposal that sees suspended staff back on the job, and includes measures to address PSA concerns around safety, management practice and the pay system.”
“Probation workers will attend PSA meetings throughout NZ at 11.00 am this morning to consider a new proposal to end the dispute”. Said Richard Wagstaff.
CPS Staff across NZ walked off the job for three full days in protest at staff suspension and in support of a new Collective Agreement.
“If our members ratify the new proposal then the industrial action will be over. If however, they reject it, we expect more suspensions and a continuation of the dispute” said Richard Wagstaff
