    Cut and paste from todays TVNZ website.

    Oct 26, 2006



    Staff at Christchurch's Engine Centre have been told the company is experiencing serious financial difficulties.

    National secretary of the Aviation and Marine association, George Ryde, says the company's management have met with the centre's 400 staff.

    The meeting comes at a time when around 260 union members are carrying out an overtime ban on work.

    Ryde says staff haven't been told about job cuts or restructuring.

    He says they told him they might have to make some more radical decisions about the future of the Engine Centre further down the line if they are unable to get back to normal production.

    Ryde says the union's lines of communication are open with the company to work through this period.
    That went as well as can be expected.........

    Funny how the news about "financial difficulties" comes when the blokes are on an overtime ban !

    i'll bet the union and the company will come to an arrangement whereby the workers will work for much less or be threatened with their jobs, thus saving the company millions and preserving valuable union income.

    it's the same old tune. don't listen to them. take the redundancy and run, like the rest of us wish we did!

    There are 2 unions there, I wonder if the company wants to cut the penal overtime rates ?
