CTU to Convene Meeting of Air New Zealand Unions


MEDIA RELEASE 25 November 2002
CTU to Convene Meeting of Air New Zealand Unions

The Council of Trade Unions will convene a joint meeting of unions in Air New Zealand next Monday, said joint union spokesperson and secretary of the Council of Trade Unions Paul Goulter today.

“We need to urgently assess any short term impact on staff and will seek commitment from the company to job security,” he said.

“The Air New Zealand unions are not just looking for protection of jobs, but also looking for job growth in the airline.”

The CTU is also discussing the issues with the Australian Council of Trade Unions.

Paul Goulter said unions in Air New Zealand would also urge the company to listen to public opinion.

“A year ago the CTU welcomed the news that Air New Zealand would remain up and running,” said Paul Goulter.

“Our flag carrying airline is central to the national interest and vital to our national economy,” he said.

“Throughout this difficult saga Air NZ staff have continued to do their jobs with pride and professionalism.

“They are the people who have made the airline what it is.” ENDS
