AMWU and ETU members will continue overtime and call out bans at Murray Goulburn after yesterday's stop work action.

AMWU and ETU members will continue overtime and call out bans at Murray Goulburn after yesterday's stop work action.

IT was business as usual at Murray Goulburn on Thursday morning after stop-work action at six Victorian sites finished Wednesday night.

Up to 110 Australian Manufacturing Workers Union (AMWU) and Electrical Trade Union (ETU) electricians and fitters, including up to 15 at the Rochester site, did not work the last hour of their shifts on Wednesday.

ETU branch organiser Peter Mooney said they were now "waiting for a call" from Murray Goulburn.

"We stopped work for an hour at the end of each shift," he said.

"Overtime and call out bans remain in place and will continue.

"There are currently no meetings with Murray Goulburn scheduled."

Wage increases, redundancy changes and apprentice numbers remained the key points in the ongoing enterprise agreement negotiations.

The parties began negotiations on April 28 and have held seven full-day meetings.

In a letter to employees, Murray Goulburn said the action was "unnecessary and unjustified".
