The Ports of Auckland (POA) have advised that an agreement has been reached with the Maritime Union of New Zealand to present an offer to union members for settlement of the Collective Employment Agreement.

A union ratification meeting will be held from 3pm on Wednesday the 17th of September.  This will result in interruption to operations at Bledisloe and Fergusson container terminals, Axis Rail, Shuttle, the Road office and Axis Pack.  This meeting is expected to last for a considerable time and services are not expected to resume prior to 7pm.  General wharf operations and Port of Onehunga operations are not affected.

In order to assist where possible, POA will be increasing the slots for the entire day on Tuesday the 16th of September and ask that any carrier with bookings for the 17th re-book where possible for Tuesday.  No trucks will be served after 3pm on the 17th September, until negotiations have been completed.

If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please contact your usual Express representative.
