Fisher & Paykel workers reject latest pay offer

Fisher and Paykel Healthcare workers have rejected their employer’s latest collective agreement offer but have committed to take part in more talks next week.

900 Fisher and Paykel Healthcare production, maintenance and distribution workers rejected the company’s offer following a series of ratification meetings held at the plant all day yesterday.

EPMU organising director Rachel Mackintosh said, “We are moving in the right direction but we are not there yet."

The unions and the employer will now take a few days to consider the results of yesterday’s meetings and recommence negotiations this Monday, September 26.

There will be no industrial action in the meantime.
