EPMU and PSA members at TVNZ have rejected a sub-inflation pay offer in favour of industrial action in pursuit of a 5% pay rise. This will take the form of "surprise stoppages aimed at high profile New Zealand-made programmes". I'd say the targets there are pretty clear: Breakfast, Close Up, and One News. That's a lot of advertising revenue which could be under threat. How much will TVNZ have to lose before bowing to the inevitable?
Of course, the real question is why a Crown Entity Company such as TVNZ is forcing its workers to take industrial action simply to keep up with inflation. Surely under a Labour government we should expect the state sector to be better than this?
