Zeal 320 cabin crew accept settlement

6:06 am on 1 September 2009

Union members at Air New Zealand subsidiary Zeal 320 have voted to accept a pay settlement after a year-long dispute.

The cabin crew of Zeal 320 argued that they were paid less than staff employed directly by Air New Zealand.

The 15-month deal includes a 4% pay rise, $1000 up front, and an increase in other allowances. A review of hours of work and rostering will also be set up.

The Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union, which represents the workers, says the deal goes a long way to closing the gap with Air New Zealand staff.
