From the Vault – Best Of The 70s: Gallery - Post Office Go Slow

  • Wednesday 1 Aug

G In this infamous edition of current affairs show Gallery, interviewer Brian Edwards turns mediator in a long-running industrial dispute. After wage negotiations for Post Office workers broke down, staff were on an imposed 'go-slow' - which meant that all of New Zealand was invested in the outcome. With no real end in sight, Gallery Producer Des Monaghan managed to get the Postmaster General Mr McCready and Mr Reddish of the Post Office union into the studio together. Brian Edwards then managed to force an agreement between the two men in the final minutes of the show which finally put an end to the stalemate. In this excerpt Edwards discusses the dispute with workers on the shop floor.
