Union walkout at mediation with port

12:46 pm on 10 February 2012

Maritime Union representatives walked out of the latest round of mediation with Ports of Auckland on Friday.

The union says the company is running amok with its own agenda.

Union members will be off the job for seven days from 24 February.

That will follow a partial five-day strike starting next Wednesday.

The company says the repeated strikes are a roadblock to progress.
