General Salary Range pay system review

#Target Evaluators

We developed a proposed step pay system, this was done by Dec 2017. The discussions with MPI to implement it stalled this year. In August MPI said it wanted to re-start the discussions. We met again with MPI in Sep. We have presented our final proposed steps and rates to MPI (v5) on 21 Nov.

#Rosters in Border

We need to work on existing problems and build better rosters systems for our members. Our key objective is to improve work/life balance for our members. This include reacting to the MPI Auckland-wide Roster Project and trying to resolve the on-going  Dog Handlers dispute - for an update on this see the "News" page.

#Equal Pay claim

We have raised an Equal Pay claim for Support Officers, and staff who do similar work. See the document box on this page for a list of the roles covered by the claim.

- Information has been gathered

- A meeting was held In Wellington on 17 Sep for Support Officer representatives, PSA and MPI to come together to discuss the claim and work on addressing it

- At the meeting we also agreed we would pursue a PSA claim for a Support Officers stepped pay system
