Re: Possible Industrial Action – July 2017
The Metal and Engineering sector’s three year wage agreement with labour unions will come to an end on the 30th of June 2017. Various employer organizations are currently in discussion with union representatives to reach an agreement that would hopefully allow our business to supply products and services to you uninterrupted.
In the event that no agreement is reached, a dispute could result in a protected strike that will affect our normal service levels.
We hope that this warning will assist you to plan for this event. We suggest the early placement of July orders to ensure we are able to supply your requirements timeously.
We also invite you to contact our sales staff or management if we can assist in anyway.
We apologise for the possible inconvenience this action might have on your business.
