Mr Abbott said ( about Fletcher Building ) : “This is a tactic emerging as a trend in the last few days as employers find new ways to make receipt of the subsidy conditional on a worker’s agreement to contract variations invented by the employer,” “What that means is that Fletcher are telling people – mainly union members and others who didn’t want to sign away their rights – that if they don’t voluntarily sign up to Fletcher’s pay bridging programme, the company can’t receive a wage subsidy for them, so they may go unpaid or asked to discuss redundancy” External link

Ross Taylor said ( about Fletcher Building ) : "Fletcher Building is continuously assessing its balance sheet position and investment opportunities to drive shareholder returns. Following the completion of the Formica sale for NZ$1.2 billion, we have considered a few key factors for allocation of the sale proceeds. The Company is well below its target leverage range, and better than previously forecast. We have around NZ$600 million of debt that we will repay over the next 12 months. And we have around NZ$250 million of cash outflows to complete the legacy B+I projects, and we remain confident that these projects will be completed within the current provisions. Based on these factors, we are in a position to distribute up to NZ$300 million to shareholders, with the most effective method being an on-market share buyback" External link
