The 2017 Private Sector Wage Survey Briefing

The sharply rising CPI is putting pressure on negotiated wage rates. Some unions are demanding and achieving more than 3% deals. Last week we discovered a 10% deal. The wage negotiation environment is rapidly changing. What’s really happening out there?  Get factual info you can trust!

This morning briefing will highlight the results of our Annual Collective Agreement Settlements Survey covering in excess of 200 agreements.  The survey is firmly established as the primary source of private sector wage information for NZ organisations looking for up-to-date market intelligence on union wage claims and settlement trends.  Data is categorised by union, region and industry, is un-weighted and non-manipulated giving you the facts of Collective Agreement settlements, for 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017.

We shall also discuss the practical implications for organisations after the recent outcome of the Equal Pay case.

9.00am - 12.30pm
