Waterfront Labour Reform

Waterfront Labour Reform

(p.139) Chapter 6 Waterfront Labour Reform
Registering Interest

James Reveley

Liverpool University Press

This chapter considers the process of labour reform as a result of the preceeding events, plus the 1984 election that ensured a Labour government in New Zealand. It details the following processes: firm-based employment; intensified competition; the shift to non-standard employment; working conditions; and the Employment Relations Act 2000. It concludes by speculating over the formation of new unions in the wake of labour reforms, claiming that it cannot be discerned whether these unions represent employee or employer interests. Reveley maintains that waterfront unionism in New Zealand remains a complex and ever-shifting environment.
