Yesterday, members were advised that today’s (Friday) strike was cancelled as FENZ had provided a revised position on outstanding matters
that demonstrated movement but not all matters for inclusion in the collective agreement were resolved.
The NZPFU national committee determined today to cancel Monday’s strike while Government considers increasing the necessary funding to
settle the collective agreement negotiations. The parties are asking the Government to increase the proposal it made a couple of weeks ago.
The NZPFU and Fire and Emergency have held two days of negotiations this week which has included an exchange of proposals and consideration
of different modelling options that incorporated a proposed funding injection by Government.
