UPDATED: Ports of Auckland dispute costs union $1m+, 'facilitation waste of time'
UPDATE / 11am: Ports of Auckland's response appears at the end of the story.
The Ports of Auckland industrial dispute has cost the Maritime Union more than $1 million.
Asked if the dispute had hit $1 million, the union’s national president, Garry Parsloe, told NBR ONLINE: “Yes, it’s over that.”
But, the union would do it all again, he says, adding: “It’s something we had to do.”
