Union asks for mediation help in AFFCO dispute

Meat Workers Union claims that meat company AFFCO has made a pay offer as a result of the negotiations, and which can bring union wages into line workers under individual contracts.  Up to 1000 union members are locked out from eight of AFFCO’s North Island meat processing plants and another 500 are on strike in support.  Union spokesperson Graham Cooke says it has asked the Employment Authority to facilitate mediation after the latest round of talks was postponed.
