Postal Workers Union on NZ Post plans to hire only contractors

From Morning Report, 6:44 am on 31 January 2024

NZ Post and the Postal Workers Union will be back in talks on Thursday over plans to get rid of all posties within the next five years and replace them with contractors.

The company is making the move in response to the drastic fall in mail volumes. 

But the union says these changes are being imposed, and argues their collective agreement requires the company to explore other options.

NZ Post declined our request for an interview.

Postal Workers Union co-national president John Maynard spoke to Corin Dann.
