PSA members around New Zealand who work at the Ministry of Justice have voted to commence further industrial action from 4pm today.

This will see a continuation of work to rule actions that were taken between 19 September and 19 October. The timeframe for these actions – consisting of bans on working outside normal hours of work and taking common daily breaks of 1 hour 35 minutes each day – will run through to Friday 9 November.

The PSA has not ruled out applying added pressure in the period before commencing mediation with Ministry of Justice officials (currently set down for Monday 29 October).

This could see a further escalation of action if the scenario of a stalemate around the bargaining table is deemed likely to continue.

PSA national delegates are meeting this afternoon to consider options vis-à-vis any new developments in the bargaining position of the Ministry.
