John Murrie

Senior Tutor

School of Aviation

An academic for over a decade my first 3 years at Massey were spent teaching Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management at under-graduate and post-graduate level while completing my Masters in Employment Relations.  Upon graduation, with 1st Class Honors, I moved to the School of Aviation where I have taught a large number of papers in the Aviation Management programme including 190116, 190220, 190211 and 190306 as well as a Meteorology paper 190121 in the ATP programme.  From 2013 onward my teaching has focused entirely on 190116 and 190220, core elements of the management programme, and 190121.  

Also active in academic research I have several international and New Zealand based publications focused on employment relations issues specifically the attitudes of employers to collective bargaining, workplace unionism and institutional issues in the New Zealand employment relations system.  At present I am working toward a PhD topic in an employment relations aviation related field.
