Green Party Comment On Ports Of Auckland Lifting Lockout Notice

The lifting of the lockout notice by the Ports of Auckland management is a good step forward in resolving the Ports of Auckland crisis, Green Party industrial relations spokesperson Denise Roche said today.

“Ports of Auckland management need to realise that their earlier inflexible stance was destroying the productivity of Auckland’s port,” said Ms Roche.
“We encourage the Ports of Auckland management to bargain in good faith with the Maritime Union.

“While today’s move is a welcome step there needs to be a review of how the Ports of Auckland management have handled this dispute so far.

“Auckland ratepayers deserve decent management at our port. After all it is our economic gateway,” concluded Ms Roche.
