The NZPFU has been approached by some of our members who are also members of the New Zealand Firefighters Credit Union (FCU) who are
concerned an amalgamation proposal with another credit union is being voted on without any information on other options.
The NZPFU has been getting complaints from members (trainees and trainers) that they are being required to travel to courses outside of
their usual hours and are not being paid the correct rate for that travel time.
FENZ has repeatedly claimed through the disestablishment of Area Managers and the establishment of District and Group Manager positions that
only the suitably qualified and experienced will be appointed.
Further to our National Notice to Members dated 22 February 2021 regarding the 10th Anniversary of the Christchurch Earthquake,
we have now received the commemorative coins and are in the process of despatching them to all members.
The NZPFU strongly advises members that it is not in your interests to engage with FENZ’s Behaviour and Conduct Office (BCO) as key issues
including procedural fairness and structure for receiving and handling complaints is yet to be determined, and practical and fair complaints
processes are yet to be realised.
