SkyCity has offered a pay rise of between 4% to 6% in its latest round of negotiations with Unite Union.
Union advocate Mike Treen, who is leading the bargaining for Unite members at SkyCity, said the offer is effectively a paycut.
“This is an effective real wage cut of up to 3.3% when inflation is 7.3%. This comes on top of a cut in last year’s round of 2.5% when we had no choice but to accept a dictated offer during the lockdown,” said Treen.
He added that SkyCity is the only major hotel employer to offer a start rate below the living wage, with IHG the latest to agree to pay the living wage to Unite members.
