Negotiations for PSA and TEU general staff members at the University of Auckland resume today with mediation assistance. Union members have been negotiating for four months now, and are still awaiting a pay offer. TEU advocate Jane Kostanich says the union parties are ready to negotiate “but we need an offer from the employer, and a willingness to work together to create the work environment that members and the employer both desire.”
In the meantime, general staff will be picketing outside Alfred Nathan House at lunchtime both today and tomorrow.
General staff have been campaigning for two year for a transparent, objective and fair pay system to replace the current performance pay system.
