'Miserable' pay offer for Presbyterian Support workers.
NZNO and the Service and Food Workers' Union (SFWU) claim was for a five percent pay increase for all staff; a five percent increase in allowances; an additional 20 percent on weekend and night shift rates; and improved leave provisions. The only offer from management was the paltry pay increase and no pay review until November next year. Presbyterian Support also wanted to introduce youth rates, reduce sick leave and bring in alcohol and drug testing.
Stop work meetings
Stopwork meetings to vote on the offer were to be hen this month. NZNO and SFWU delegates are intent on building membership density in the PS sites and raising the profile of the joint Fair Share for Aged Care Campaign. Another two days of negotiations are scheduled for early September.
