Fisher & Paykel ditches NZ for cheap labour

Fisher & Paykel also announced job losses with the closure of its Dunedin plant this week.

The profitable company announced it will be moving production of its dish-drawers and cookware to Mexico – a move that means more than four hundred jobs will be lost in Dunedin with jobs also lost from plants in Brisbane and California.

EPMU national secretary Andrew Little says Fisher & Paykel has lost sight of its Kiwi origins and lost its heart and soul.

“Most exporting manufacturers in New Zealand are struggling with a high US-NZ dollar but you expect companies the size of Fisher & Paykel to work hard to keep jobs here.
