Wellington Local Notice to Members

Travel Money

There seems to be a divergence from past practice and agreements in Wellington Fire District regarding travel payments whilst on Overtime.

The Local has taken up members concerns with CFO Graham. The Local has informed Mr. Graham that the e mails and statements by DCFO Dunphy are quite incorrect and we have asked that all monies owed to members, be paid ASAP. Members are advised that the paying of travel money dates back quite some time when the Fire Service transported FF’s and their PPE to the station they were due to attend for OT.
