The Restaurant Association’s industry advisory groups are proudly supported by Gilmours
The Fair Pay Agreements (FPA) system in New Zealand brings together unions and employer associations within a sector to bargain for minimum employment terms for all covered employees – either in an industry, or an occupation.
On 29 May 2023, MBIE approved the Union’s application to initiate Fair Pay Agreement bargaining for the hospitality industry. This means moving towards the next step where hospitality employers (represented- by the Restaurant Association and other Associations) and hospitality employees (represented by the Union) will begin negotiations on what minimum terms will be included in a FPA.
Introducing the Fair Pay Agreement Advisory Group
The Restaurant Association is committed to representing hospitality employer’s voices in the bargaining process. To enable this, it has brought together a diverse group of members with expertise from all sectors of the hospitality industry across New Zealand to guide our approach as bargaining party members.
Meeting once per month, the Advisory Council will provide a forum for hospitality employer’s to share perspectives, discuss and unite around the bargaining approach and considerations. These views will be integral in helping guide the bargaining process and shaping the outcome.
