The Rail and Maritime Transport Union (RMTU) and Maritime Union of New Zealand (MUNZ) will have a closed meeting of its membership in Port Chalmers today following what they describe as ''a day of frustration'' during mediation with Port Otago management yesterday.

''It's gotten to the unique stage where the parties can't even agree what we don't agree on'', unions spokesman John Kerr said. He said the company's positive financial results would also likely be a heated point of discussion at today's meeting.

The unions, who represent 250 of the port's workers, have had a ban on overtime from Saturday.
