The Bay of Plenty Rugby Union is facing a restructure process as it looks to recover from the COVID-19 lockdown.

The union has released a statement advising of the the restructure, but says it will not release details on individual roles.

Bay of Plenty Rugby chief executive Mike Rogers says COVID-19 has forced the Union to look at a restructuring process of its organisation.

“New Zealand is facing unprecedented times and many organisations and families have been impacted."

He says the scale of the restructuring is primarily in direct response to the financial challenges we need to address to preserve the cash required to allow us to survive.

“We need to make significant cost savings now and re-build when we have more certainty as to what the future holds. Our main sponsors have committed to supporting Bay Rugby.

“The people at Bay Rugby have always been and will continue to be our greatest asset. Unfortunately, we are having to look at some roles being merged or disestablish."

Rogers says the depth of the restructure is unknown as the review process is still ongoing.

“Bay Rugby will not be making any comments on individual roles as this is an employment matter and we wish to respect the privacy of our employees."

Rogers says Bay Rugby is actively working with staff to support them through this process.
