SkyCity offers up to 6% pay rise

5 Aug 2022  By Staff Reporter | news@tourismticker.com | @tourismticker

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.
