Welcome to the Rail and Maritime Transport Union Online

The RMTU is a union for transport workers in which all members have equal rights, whatever their job.

With rapid change, and increasing competition in the transport industry it is important that workers are protected by a strong, well-resourced union, specialising in all aspects of the transport industry; rail, road and ports.

The structure of the RMTU gives you the opportunity to be fully involved in a democratic union as collective decisions are made which may affect your job and conditions of employment.

You have the opportunity to elect your workplace union representative (delegate), as well as branch and national union representatives. You have a voice at all levels of the RMTU.

Media Release Rail & Maritime Transport Union

Monday 11th December, 2017

The Rail and Maritime Transport Union (RMTU) says Lyttelton Port CEO Peter Davie’s $955,000 pay packet cannot be justified and is symptomatic of a broken wage-setting system in New Zealand.

‘We’re in the middle of  negotiations for a port wide collective agreement that covers cargo handlers, marine, maintenance and security staff and this news is slap in the face for those workers,’ said RMTU South Island Organiser John Kerr.
