Ports of Auckland said this afternoon that despite media reports, it was yet to receive a 8th strike notice from the Maritime Union of New Zealand – Local 13 (MUNZ).
The two parties are scheduled to attend mediation tomorrow on their Collective Agreement negotiations.
Ports of Auckland CEO Tony Gibson said MUNZ’s repeated strike actions were a roadblock to progress.
Mr Gibson said the company would continue to consult over its proposal to contract out labour at the container terminal.
“A further meeting with MUNZ on the proposal is scheduled for tomorrow.”
Third party contractors already operate the conventional (non-container terminal) port facilities.
