RIVERSIDE Meats’ workers have not ruled out further industrial action as negotiations continue about pay and conditions.

‘‘Negotiations are pretty steady. There’s not much happening,’’ union representative Darrel Holgate said. ‘‘It (striking) is still on the cards just not at the minute...we just want a fair deal...hopefully we can come to an agreement.’’

Workers took industrial action last month after talks broke down.

The workers main concern is about the tally system, an incentive system that pays workers more for increased output.

Riverside wants to shift its staff onto fixed hours and salaries.

Riverside Meats declined to comment.
