Auckland's SkyCity casino has become the latest employer to abandon zero-hours contracts.
The company, New Zealand's biggest single-site hospitality employer with almost 3500 staff on its Auckland site, has agreed to give its 800 part-time and on-call staff guaranteed hours of at least eight, 16, 20 or 32 hours a week, at their choice.

SkyCity workers ratify new contract in a series of stop work meetings on Friday, August 28
