Workplace Representation

Advice and representation readily available. The society has an extensive experience delivering representation, solutions and advice for employment, professional and related matters.

Effective support and solutions

We provide a full range of workplace representation, employment law and bargaining services, including reviewing and vetting employment agreements and other contracts, negotiating agreements and representing members with all types of workplace issues.

This includes representation for workplace, disciplinary processes and employment problems including disciplinary interviews, negotiated settlements, restructures and redundancies, plus personal grievance matters. Highly skilled at solving problems informally, without being unduly adversarial, and where possible at the operational level.

We handle both individual and collective employment agreements. Some of our workplace representation is now undertaken through our principal industrial arm Te Uniana o NSNZ. Te Uniana o NSNZ is a registered union. Te Uniana o NSNZ is part of the Society and an application for membership of the Society serves as an application for membership of Te Uniana o NSNZ. No extra fees (direct or indirect) apply.

Information on what happens if there is a MECA negotiated by another union is here, plus a sample a DHB offer letter and sample DHB IEA based on the MECA.   Employment New Zealand which is part of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has some apposite guidelines as well.
