Fair Pay Agreement Recommendation Report

The Fair Pay Working Group has presented its report to the NZ Government, outlining 46 recommendations to design a collective bargaining system that aims to lift wages and productivity in New Zealand.

The recommendations will now be considered by the New Zealand Government.

The Fair Pay Agreement Working Group, chaired by former Prime Minister Rt Hon Jim Bolger, comprised experts in economics, collective bargaining and employment law, along with representatives of workers and business.

“The Government will now take its time to consider their recommendations and comments,” Workplace Relations and Safety Minister Iain Lees-Galloway said on receiving the report.

“The next phase of work will require detailed policy consideration and consultation and we’ll take the time to get it right.”
