Maritime Union of New Zealand
The Maritime Union of New Zealand was formed in 2002 when the New Zealand Waterfront Workers’ Union and the New Zealand Seafarers’ Union joined together. We represent waterfront workers, seafarers and related workers in New Zealand.
The Maritime Union of New Zealand is concerned about the reduction in monitoring of international shipping by Maritime New Zealand, the Government agency responsible for ensuring a “safe, secure and clean” maritime environment.
Maritime Union of New Zealand National Secretary Joe Fleetwood says New Zealand is a maritime nation but there was no leadership from central Government for the industry.
