Railway Progress in New Zealand — General Manager's Message
Railway Progress in New Zealand
General Manager's Message
The Management desires to join with the staff in its appreciation of the fact that the Government has found it possible to grant a 5% increase in wages and salaries to the members of the Public Service throughout New Zealand and sincerely hopes that the general position of the country's finances, coupled with increased prosperity among all sections of the community, will be such as to make a further increase practicable in the not distant future. The increase in pay for railwaymen involves an additional expenditure of £160,000 in the wages bill for the current year and I feel confident that members of the service, in showing their appreciation of the Government's action, will redouble their efforts to secure new business for the Railways and, by exercising every endeavour in the direction of safe and economical working, will do their best to maintain the improvement in net revenue which has been shown in recent years.
Acting General Manager.
