Update 3 - Strike Notice at Lyttelton port
27 January 2017 - LPC HAS RECEIVED ANOTHER MUNZ STRIKE NOTICE: 11 - 12 FEBRUARY
LPC has received another strike notice from the Maritime Union of New Zealand (MUNZ). This is for Saturday 11 February and Sunday 12 February.
This is in addition to the other strike notices in place for today, Friday 27 January, and Saturday 28 January, and for three days from Friday 3 February to Sunday 5 February.
As we have advised previously, LPC is legally challenging the validity of the strike notice issued for 3-5 February. We hope to hear the outcome early next week.
We remain very disappointed that MUNZ is continuing to issue strike notices during negotiations. Our goal is to try and negotiate a settlement soon.
LPC and MUNZ have been in bargaining over three days this week and there will be mediated bargaining next week on Wednesday 1 February and Thursday 2 February.
We appreciate your patience during this time and will provide you with another update next week.
