Ernst & Young: $91k figure for wharfies is correct

The Ports of Auckland has had Ernst & Young independently examine their wage and salary records after claims and counter claims were made by the Maritime Union following the release of the details by Cactus Kate.

Ernst & Young have confirmed the POAL figures and categorically destroyed the arguments of the Maritime Union. There is absolutely no doubt now about the $91,000 figure for the rich prick greedy wharfies.

Key findings:

  • Ports of Auckland commissioned the work in response to claims by the MaritimeUnion of New Zealand – Local 13 (MUNZ) that remuneration figures quoted by the company were overstated and relied on excessive amounts of overtime being worked.
  • Ernst & Young found Ports of Auckland was correct in stating that the averageremuneration for full time stevedores was $91,000.
  • Not a single full-time stevedore earned as little as the $56,700 described by the Maritime Union as the basic wage at Ports of Auckland.
  • Ernst & Young found that even part time stevedores made more than this, earning on average $65,000.
  • 43 individuals earned over $100,000 with the highest earner making $122,000.
