UPDATED: MIDDAY 5 DECEMBER 2022

Due to logistical issues, we've had to change some of the dates/times for upcoming ratification meetings which commence later this week.

See changes for Wellington, Hawkes Bay, Masterton, Dunedin, Timaru and Christchurch Locals below.

The NZPFU National Committee is pleased to report that all formal documentation is on track to be finalised and signed off in time for ratification meetings to commence later this week. 

All NZPFU members will receive all information on the proposed settlement prior to Thursday.   All members will be sent the information at the same time and before the ratification meetings. We will update when that information will be sent when we can.  

  • We have had to fit all meetings into a tight schedule as there is a one-off payment that can be paid prior to Christmas if ratification is achieved and by a set date.
  • You will see that we are doing a number of meetings each day, and most require travel in between.  So we will need to start promptly and get members signed in as receiving their voting paper. As this will be a settlement recommended by the NCOM, and the members will already have received the information on the detail, it should be sufficient to go over the settlement proposal and answer questions. 
  • Vice President Joseph Stanley and I will attend all meetings as the National President is away.   There will also be the relevant NCOM members at meetings within their Branches. 
  • The ratification vote will be counted at the NZPFU Petone office at 1500 hours on Sunday 18th December.

Ratification Meeting next Tuesday 13th Dec at 5pm

As you will be well aware by now, we have finally reached an agreed term of settlement in the negotiation for a new CEA. The NZPFU is recommending members accept it and ratify the settlement offer. The National Committee has completely wrung out the sponge for every possible drop of benefit to members, and it's now our turn to act.
