Massey University to hire staff for good, not just 90 days

The Tertiary Education Union announced this week that it has negotiated that any new staff hired at Massey University will not be subject to a ninety day fire-at-will provision.  Massey University has committed that, even if the government’s introduces its proposed new employment laws which deny workers their basic personal grievance rights in the first ninety days of work, those laws will not apply to staff at Massey University.

TEU deputy secretary Nanette Cormack said good employers shouldn’t have any need for the government’s proposed new laws.

“Good employers are willing to put the effort into advertising, interviews, training and management so they keep their staff for a long time not a few months.”

“Good employers already have the tools they need to give workers a chance, trial them and even dismiss them, without taking away basic employment rights. Workers don’t want these new laws and good employers don’t need them. Which raises the question who they are really for?”
