Employment Relations Act changes

​Changes to the Employment Relations Act come into effect from Monday 6 May 2019, involving new rest and meal break entitlements for employees.  

We have been working closely with our operators, the government and the wider industry to understand the implications of this legislative change and minimise any impact on Metro services and our customers. 

We anticipate that all trips will run with no cancellations needed. There is a chance that some services may experience minor delays. While we don’t expect there to be any significant disruption to services, we will be closely monitoring and if any issues arise, we will work with our operators to find a solution and keep passengers informed. 

​We will keep this page and the Metro Canterbury Facebook page​ updated if any unexpected issues arise. If you have any questions, please call Metroinfo on 03 366 88 55.
