One worker told Newshub she hasn't had a pay rise for five years."Roles are a good ,000 behind equivalent roles in other organisations", said Mr Kelly.
Other threats might include an administrative law action or complaint, referring the other party to a regulatory body, turning the party into the legal authorities over a crime or civil infraction, or the like. a threat that a party "shall be forced to consider its legal options" or "will refer the matter to legal counsel." A cease and desist (C&D) letter is a formalized legal demand that a party stop ("cease") and refrain ("desist") from an activity that the demanding party finds objectionable, generally couched in formal language accusing the activity of violating the law.
The objected-to activity may be most anything, although cease-and-desist letters are particularly common among certain areas of the law: A "demand letter" is a formalized demand by a party that another party pay money or take certain acts, often accompanied by a claim that the second party has engaged in illegal conduct, with an implicit or explicit threat that the demanding party will take some form of legal action.

However Palmerston North MP and Labour's Defence spokesperson Iain Lees-Galloway calls it "an extremely misleading statement designed to intimidate staff" The letter also suggested Defence expected that all workers should work during the notified strike period.
"For a government agency to act in such an intimidating fashion is appalling," said Mr Lees-Galloway.
They are specially trained in how to write letters that preserve your rights should the conflict end up in court.
Also, just like you hate it when a client tries to “help,” lawyers do, too. So you don’t want to use them with someone with whom you hope to have a long and productive relationship.
Please feel free to have your legal counsel review it for further modifications.
