Progressive and NDU reach agreement

Progressive Enterprises and the National Distribution Union reached a settlement on their collective agreement dispute yesterday afternoon, with both sides claiming victory after a bitter four weeks of industrial action.

The parties settled separate collective agreements for union members at each of Progressive’s three distribution centres, but the agreements provide for pay parity, by the end of the second year of the agreement, between the sites. This means that in the first year Christchurch employees would be looking at raises of almost 20 per cent while employees at the Palmerston North site would get only a 4.5 per cent increase.

The collective agreements preserve the different sites’ shift and roster systems. However the complicated system of allowances has been streamlined to comprise a single base rate.

The company will make interest free loans of up to $1,000 available to union members affected by the lock-out.
