More evidence that union pays

Last week the Gossip reported that unions were helping to close the wage gap with Australia – wages in union collective agreements increased by 4.2 per cent according to Victoria University’s employment survey while average wages overall increased by only 1.6 per cent in the past year.

The results of the survey reveal more of why it is in workers’ best interests to join a union and be part of collective bargaining for pay. Results showed that 53% of New Zealand workers got no pay increase at all last year, while only 2% of union members covered by collective agreements missed out on a pay rise.
