Further to e‐news (NTM 13) of 23 March 2012.
Herewith is the signed (by the Mediator) Record of Settlement in regard to this matter.
As has been clearly outlined in regard to previous situations where strike action is removed, none of the work not done during the strike action is to be caught up when normal work resumed.
For example – Annual Business Plans (the strike lasted around 7.5 months) will have around 62.5% remaining uncompleted.
As far as O.S.M. is concerned, eventually everyone will become green‐lighted. However, instructions put out in Auckland for example have been withdrawn (along with a verbal apology from Brian Butt) as the timeframes provided were ridiculous. The critical (approx 6) items will be green‐lighted with the target transfer of 1 month.
