Pastry workers to go on strike

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 25/10/2016

Workers at Auckland-based Pastry House are preparing to go on strike over what their union has described as a "mean" pay offer.

Thirty-seven E tu members will walk off the job for two days from 7.30am on Wednesday.

Union organiser Alvy Tata says the company has offered 1.5 per cent a year over two years, which she says is not acceptable to members.

She says Pastry House, which is owned by Australian giant Allied Mills, has secured two big key supply contracts.

"Members have no appetite for an inferior offer," she said.

"They know these contracts will mean more work for them, but more money for the company."

She said workers also wanted a one-year term, not two-year.
