It has been brought to the attention of the Union that some members who have qualified as Grade 1 Drivers are being denied the relevant pay rise that accompanies this achievement. The excuse provided by Management is that there is a disconnect between National Training and Area Management in terms of paperwork and notifications to Payroll.

While this makes for a good story, the employer has both a contractual as well as statutory obligation to pay an employee their correct wages in timely fashion.

It is unacceptable to the Union that a member is denied their full wages for any reason, let alone what appears to be a morass of bureaucratic inefficiency.

The Union invites any member who is currently not getting paid the appropriate wage, whether through promotion or having been successful in gaining their Grade 1 Driving qualification, to contact the Union Office auckland@nzpfu.org.nz, or get in touch with an Auckland Local Committee member.
