Air NZ staff to strike
February 19, 2003

AIR New Zealand's Australian staff will strike next week in frustration at the lack of progress made in pay negotiations.

The industrial action by the airline's Australian workforce, comprising about 90 check-in staff, flight supervisors and sales representatives, will take the form of each staff member missing half a shift next Tuesday and again on Wednesday.

Protest rallies will also be held outside the airline's Sydney office at 1pm on Tuesday.

Australian Services Union (ASU) assistant national secretary Linda White predicted the stoppage would disrupt several Air New Zealand flights, a claim denied by the airline's Australian spokesman.

"We received the notification this afternoon," the Air New Zealand spokesman told AAP.

Should not impact on the company greatly. Most of the flight attendants are past breeding age anyway....
