The seminar marking CLEW's 50th Anniversary - ‘Is it time to reset our Employment Relations Systems?’ attracted not only an excellent range of presenters to tackle the topic but also a wide range of people from across the New Zealand employment relations community.
Dr Stephen Blumenfeld, CLEW's Director, discusses the Government's recent 'guidelines for wage bargaining' in central government agencies. The announcement, a de facto ‘pay freeze’ for public servants over the next three years - limited pay increases to those earning less than $60,000 a year, and those earning above that level up to $100,000 may be offered pay increases in some circumstances. But is there justification for such a "freeze" and what are the possible consequences?
