  • TIA submission on the Fair Pay Agreements Bill

    20 May 2022

    The Fair Pay Agreement Bill represents a major shift in the way labour relations are undertaken in Aotearoa New Zealand. TIA has consulted within the tourism industry and more widely, and every conversation heightens our concern around the Bill. This concern is not around the intent of the Bill – we very much support better wages, conditions and productivity across the tourism workforce. Rather, we are very concerned that the Bill would establish a complicated labour relations framework that will serve as a major impediment to the operation of the tourism industry to the detriment to both business operators and their employees.
