Lyttelton Port loses $100,000 due to strike

LYTTELTON: the strike on Lyttelton port is continued for the second week and it cause loss of $100,000 to the port.

Organiser for the Rail and Maritime Transport Union John Kerr said the port can not guarantee its workers’ safety without its maintenance staff, who are striking for better wages.

He said the port will likely lose about $100,000 in revenue this weekend but the union took no pleasure in that, and its members would rather be talking than fighting.

Port operations manager Paul Monk said a deal under collective bargaining was not likely until after the holiday period.
