Port strike over - two more to come

5:24 am on 24 December 2011

A 24 hour port strike by union members in Auckland is over, but another will be held on Sunday.

Maritime Union members intend to strike for 24 hours again on Christmas Day and for 48 hours on 30 December.

National president Garry Parsloe says the dispute is not over money but about other issues including the company hiring private trucking firms for work at the port.
