Air New Zealand Strike notice lifted after agreement

Strike notice lifted as Air New Zealand and aircraft maintenance workers reach agreement

Air New Zealand is pleased that an agreement has been reached with the unions representing its aircraft maintenance and logistics workers including the lifting of strike notices that threatened to disrupt travel for 120,000 customers over the three busiest travel days of the year.

Three days of mediated negotiations concluded this evening with the parties reaching an agreement that the unions will now take to their members to vote on.

Air New Zealand Chief Ground Operations Officer Carrie Hurihanganui says the airline has been very focused on achieving resolution on behalf of its customers who can now be reassured their Christmas holiday travel plans are secure.

“We know how important it is to our customers to get where they need to be, particularly at this special time of the year and the negotiating teams have been working diligently to achieve this result.”

Mrs Hurihanganui says the airline is unable to discuss details of the agreement as the unions now need to communicate it to their members and achieve ratification. She acknowledged the good faith in which the negotiations had been conducted in helping achieve this outcome for travellers.
