What’s up today?

Impact of workplace arguments

One in four employees have had a workplace dispute in the past year that has affected their ability to fully do their job, a new survey has found.

The survey, by Crown-owned dispute mediation consultancy FairWay Resolution, asked about 400 workers about conflict in the workplace.

It found 24 per cent had experienced at least one disagreement at work that had distracted them or prevented them from doing their job.

Warehouse workers to get lift in wages

18 August 2014

More than 4100 workers at The Warehouse Group will start receiving more in their bank accounts as the retail giant moves into the second stage of its "career retailer wage" policy.

The new wage band will raise the wages of staff who have done the required training for their jobs and have at least 5000 hours experience in their roles. 

NZ job prospects rise

12 August 2014

For the first time since the global recession hit, it is now easier to find a job in New Zealand than in Australia.

A sharp drop in New Zealand's unemployment rate from 6 per cent in March to 5.6 per cent in June has brought the local jobless rate below Australia's - 6 per cent - for the first time since March 2009. 

12,000 health workers vote to strike

7 August 2014

Nearly 12,000 unionised health workers have voted in favour of taking industrial action, after they were offered an "insulting" pay increase, the Public Service Association says.

The workers, who staff every District Health Board across the country, include mental and public health nurses, physiotherapists, anaesthetic technicians, dental therapists, administrative staff and a number of other occupational groups.

They were offered a 0.7 per cent pay increase per year and no movement on other issues including training and professional development, PSA national secretary Richard Wagstaff said. 

Work, wages revamp planned

5 August 2014

Labour is planning a "fair workplace commission" to lift the lid on workers' pay and conditions ahead of a major revamp of industrial relations law.

The party's work and wages policy, to be unveiled by Labour leader David Cunliffe today, would in the first 100 days repeal recent National changes, including the 90 day "fire-at-will" probation rule. The minimum wage would be lifted to $15 in April and to about $16 later in the year. 

Focus on health and safety sharpens

30 July 2014

Workplace health and safety is back in the media spotlight after a recent appeal of a major retailer's sentence and the progress through Parliament of new legislation set to line up our regime with that of Australia.
