Maritime Union of New Zealand members at the Ports of Auckland met this morning to look at the recommendations of the Employment Relations Authority facilitator on the dispute.
The Maritime Union of New Zealand welcomes today the message from Ports of Auckland Limited (POAL) that it is willing to compromise, on the basis of the recommendations of the facilitator, to reach the settlement of a collective agreement at the Port.
The Employment Relations Authority has fined the Ports of Auckland $40,000 for illegally employing strike breaking contractors during industrial action at the Port earlier this year.
In a response to a letter received today from the Mayor of Auckland Len Brown on the Ports of Auckland dispute, the Maritime Union says it is committed to continuing to make every effort to settle a collective agreement with POAL.
As part of the facilitation process, the Facilitator agreed with the parties (Maritime Union of New Zealand and Ports of Auckland Limited) that he would write to stakeholders to update them on progress, including position papers from both parties, which could be made public.
