Auckland Wants Its Port Working Again
The Mayor has welcomed the chance to end the dispute at the Ports of Auckland.

“Aucklanders simply want their port open and fully operational again,” says Len Brown.

“I have been in contact with both sides and have encouraged them to come to an agreement. I am determined that this issue gets sorted.

“A fully operational port is essential to the economy of Auckland and to the economy of New Zealand as a whole.

“We need a sustainable solution that delivers an efficient port and a good return to the people of Auckland.

“This is a position I have held consistently since the start of the dispute.

“Over the next few days I will be working with both sides to ensure our expectation that negotiations continue in good faith is honoured.

“I intend to bring both sides together with the aim of progressing the talks and getting the port back up and running at full capacity.”
