Current and ongoing negotiations involving NZALPA are detailed below.
For any queries related to negotiations, please email office@nzalpa.org.nz


Jetconnect – Advocate Mark Dignan

The meeting scheduled for 26 April was cancelled at the last minute due to insufficient pilot negotiators being rostered by the Company to attend. The negotiating team is actively considering balloting the membership for their thoughts on industrial action. This would be unprecedented for this group of pilots and demonstrates the high levels of frustration felt at the lack of progress being made. Meetings have been scheduled to occur in May, and it is imperative that these days go ahead as planned and meaningful progress is made.
