Ports of Auckland and waterfront employees reach agreement

Ports of Auckland Limited and members of the Maritime Union of New Zealand Local 13 have reached agreement on their latest two-year collective employment agreement.

The agreement includes a 3% wage increase to December 2005 then a 4% wage increase to December 2006. It covers about 240 employees in the stevedoring and plant maintenance areas.

The agreement also includes a commitment by both parties to further increase productivity.

“The agreement provides a sound basis for the ongoing development of productivity initiatives that will enable higher levels of service,” said Ports of Auckland Chief Executive Geoff Vazey.

Denis Carlisle, President of the Maritime Union of New Zealand, Auckland Local 13, said that the agreed Collective Agreement variations would lead to increased productivity, which was vital to service and to retain the business of shipping lines that use the Port of Auckland.

Mr Carlisle said that he was pleased that the negotiation had been concluded and was particularly pleased with an agreement between the parties to implement a career path procedure for part-time and casual workers.
