The NZPFU and FENZ met today for bargaining and discussions are continuing.
FENZ put up a new model for settlement which included incorporating the proposed funding injection that the Government proposed last week. Both parties have work do so separately this afternoon, including clarification of costings and re-modelling proposals. The parties have agreed to meet tomorrow to continue discussions.
A representative of the Minister and independent financial peer reviewers provided by the Department of Internal Affairs are privy to the discussions.
We will keep members updated.
