Port strike in Bluff called off

The Maritime Union of New Zealand says a strike in the port of Bluff has been called off.

Workers at port company Southport were planning to walk off the job this morning for 48 hours, but last minute negotiations yesterday resulted in a positive outcome.

Maritime Union of New Zealand National Secretary Craig Harrison says a compromise was reached with the employer around wage increases and other outstanding issues, and will be taken back to the union membership for ratification.

Mr Harrison says the result is a good one.
