Since August 2005 the position of Chief Fire Officer, Auckland City East Fire District has been undertaken on a temporary basis due to CFO Wood’s secondment and subsequent promotion.

This has enabled Management to request that our members cover numerous Acting D.C.F.O. positions within the Auckland Region.

The Union feels that this has gone on for an excessive time and the vacancy should be advertised to allow personnel to be promoted to a permanent position.

It is the Local’s recommendation, as of Thursday 13th April, that members cease to carry out ALL Acting D.C.F.O. positions until such time as this Chief Fire Officer position is advertised or any alteration to the Auckland District boundaries be gazetted.

If any further clarification is required, contact the Secretary:
