The Unite Union and Burger King have reached a resolution in their dispute

Mike Treen, Unite’s National Director says:“While the parties have agreed to keep the details confidential, the Unite Union believes it’s members will be very pleased with the outcome.

“The resolution reached yesterday between the parties resolves the dispute over the union relationship and rights of union members. In addition the parties will work in good faith to promptly resolve any individual employee cases.”

In the next few days a joint union-company notice will be displayed in every store followed up by a letter to union members explaining the outcome.

Unite says it would like to thank all the people who supported the union campaign and the many Burger King customers who passed on their support to us and to individual workers in the stores.

We are confident that Burger King is committed to building a positive environment and become an employer of choice for its employees. Therefore we can recommend that the many New Zealanders who supported the workers to patronise the Burger King stores again.
