The NZPFU’s one-hour stoppage from 11am to 12 noon on Monday the 7th November 2022 has been withdrawn.
Last week there was movement in the NZPFU FENZ collective agreement negotiations with a Government proposal that would assist with settlement. The Government’s proposal provided a basis to recommence negotiating. At the time the NZPFU notified it was cancelling the one-hour stoppage on Friday we also indicated that provided a meeting was organised for this week with the appropriate decision-makers in the room we would also cancel Monday’s one-hour stoppage.
The parties have agreed to meet for bargaining on Wednesday 9 November 2022 with the appropriate attendees and decision-makers including FENZ CEO Kerry Gregory and others that are assisting the parties or advising Government.
As a result the National Committee has determined to withdraw Monday’s one-hour stoppage that was to occur from 11am.
The omnibus of bans continues unaffected by these developments.
The other notified strike action, including the one-hour stoppages notified for Friday 11th November and Monday 14th November, and the additional strike notices issued yesterday, have not been withdrawn or changed. They remain in place.
