Auckland City Fire Area - Fire Risk Manager Secondment

Attached is an Area vacancy for the position of Fire Risk Manager for the Auckland City Fire Area for a period of two months.

The Union strongly recommends to members that no-one applies for this vacancy.

The Union expresses its direction to members on the basis of concerns it has about issues relating to the position.

Currently there is one Union member stood down from his role in this department and there is also a second Union member who has relocated from working within this department and works within the Regional Office.

It would be the Union’s position that until such time as the current matters, which are subject to concern within this department, are resolved, members should not take up the secondment position.

It is disappointing that Area Management have not consulted with the Union regarding the advertising of this secondment. Given the involvement of Assistant Area Manager Dave Woon in the events occurring within this department, although disappointing, it is not surprising that he has chosen to ignore the Union and seek any joint consultation on this matter.

The Union’s position is very clear that no member should apply and take up this position.

If any member has currently submitted an application, then they should immediately withdraw this.
