Auckland City Threatens Staff For Wearing Badges

"PSA members at Auckland City Council have been threatened with disciplinary action if they proceed to protest over progress in negotiations for a Collective Employment Agreement" said Richard Wagstaff, PSA National Secretary.

"The wearing of badges is part of a lawful protest and Auckland City will end up in the Employment Authority if they do not back off" said Richard Wagstaff.

"Management continues to refuse to allow large numbers of members access to collective bargaining. Staff are protesting at this by wearing 'I'm Union' badges."

Parking officers were the first to receive the warning. "This is a heavy-handed approach and is unjustified," said Richard Wagstaff.

"Auckland City Management need to accept that collective bargaining is part of the modern environment and re-enter negotiations in good faith, recognising that all staff have the right to choose," said Richard Wagstaff.
