Union and AFFCO resume mediation

9:50 am on 30 April 2012

The Meat Workers Union, the Council of Trade Unions and AFFCO resume mediation on Monday over a collective agreement.

The decision was made last Thursday during a settlement conference at the Employment Court in Auckland.

About 1000 meatworkers have been locked out since 29 February.

Two days have been set down for the talks.

The unions say they will continue to seek an interim injunction challenging the lawfulness of the lockout.
