Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 2006 Progressive Enterprises Dispute was an industrial dispute between New Zealand supermarket company Progressive Enterprises and employees represented by the National Distribution Union and the EPMU. On August 25, 2006, over 500 employees at Progressive's four distribution centres (in Auckland, Palmerston North and Christchurch) began a 48 hour strike supporting a demand for a national collective agreement involving an eight percent wage increase and pay parity between the four centres. On August 26, 2006 the company locked out the strikers indefinitely, suspending operations at its distribution centres, with suppliers delivering goods directly to the supermarkets and also setting up amateur small scale distribution centres in car parks of Countdown supermarkets. The dispute was resolved on September 21, 2006 when Progressive Enterprises agreed to pay parity and a 4.5% wage increase.
