SkyCity plans 700 job cuts due to COVID-19 down­turn


Auck­land: SkyCity will con­sult on a pro­posal to slash 700 ca­sual, part-time and full-time ros­tered staff from its books.

It fol­lows last month’s an­nounce­ment of 200 staff re­dun­dan­cies as part of cost-cut­ting. The com­pany said the busi­ness needed to be sus­tain­able in the medium and long-term to sup­port the thou­sands of other jobs that would re­main.

The com­pany owns casi­nos, ho­tels, bars and restau­rants in Auck­land, Hamil­ton, Queen­stown and Adelaide.

Unite Union na­tional sec­re­tary Ger­ard He­hir said it was dev­as­tat­ing, but just the start of mas­sive re­dun­dan­cies across the en­tire hospi­tal­ity sec­tor.
