SkyCity has offered a below inflation rise for nearly everyone at the company and that means a pay cut in reality.
We have been forced to fight for a living wage at SkyCity by taking industrial action. Get ready!
The living wage from 1 September means a $23.65 start rate. That requires another 5% increase on the base rate of $22.50 they have already offered and another 5% on average for everyone else to maintain margins for skill.
The company will be releasing its profit number for the year at the annual shareholders' meeting this Thursday. While profit will be down because of the pandemic, business is virtually back to normal and they have made hundreds of millions of dollars over the last 25 years.
Workers deserve their fair share. They deserve a living wage.
