Our priority in Border - better rosters, roles and training

members only private Facebook group - "PSA MPI Border Staff"


Border workforce changes - We are in on-going discussions and negotiations with MPI on what the Border workforce will look like following the impact of Covid-19.

  • We have reached an agreement with MPI about the process here
  • Regular updates have been emailed to members and can also be found on the Border facebook page

Health and Safety - MPI has asked PSA delegate and national Health and Safety rep Logan Fenton to review the current Health and Safety structures. This is good, PSA believes the current structures could be improved to give more real involvement from staff.

 What else we are working on -

  • Auckland Cargo / Rotational semi-permanent positions  - PSA has been waiting for a long time for semi-permanent positions to be introduced into Cargo / Rotational to address the skills and experience problems. MPI has a draft proposal. We have provided feedback. Last discussion 11 Mar
  • Auckland ITB roster mistake - A major mistake was made with the implementation of the roster (identified late 2019). We have asked for management to explain the whole problem and are waiting to hear back (last discussion 11 March)
  • Dog Programme review - A PSA-initiated problem solving process to work on how the Dog Programme works in the future. This is an opportunity to establish a better workplace for members.
  • Higher Duties Allowance - PSA doesn't agree with the proposed Guidelines. We have commented and suggested a process to resolve this. (31 Jan)
  • Shift leave (FWA entitlements)  - Shift leave is not being given for staff (on FWA) on rotating days rosters. We believe MPI should pay it in this situation. We have asked MPI to meet to discuss and waiting for their response
