Lyttelton port workers stunned at boss' $955k pay

From Morning Report, 8:24 am on 12 December 2017

The port workers' union says revelations the Lyttelton Port chief executive was paid 955-thousand dollars last year is a slap in the face for his staff. Peter Davie was paid a salary of $597,000 and received two incentive payments - one was $209,000 and the other $149,000. The port's workers are in the middle of wage talks and have been offered a 3 percent pay rise. John Kerr is the acting general secretary of the Rail and Maritime Transport Union and tells us the payout is inflammatory, given they're in wage talks.
