The Auckland Taskforce and Governance Group met last Friday to move forward on the recommendations developed by the Taskforce Group and accepted by the Governance Group.

Since the last Taskforce meeting the options had been discussed by FENZ ELT. As a result of the discussions at the meeting on Friday the following actions were agreed:

  • FENZ representatives would undertake further detailed costings including cost benefit analysis to take into account the benefits and savings for FENZ in current working practices and some of the options proposed
  • FENZ would provide in written correspondence to the NZPFU its current response to the Taskforce Report options. The NZPFU would respond in writing.
  • The Taskforce and Governance Group to meet again to discuss the issues covered in correspondence, costing and cost benefit analysis with a view to finalising the outcomes of the Taskforce and any necessary implementation plan.

The NZPFU representatives on the Taskforce were very clear with FENZ that they expected the next meeting to take place in April with all information available to consider and determine the options to be implemented. 

Post the next meeting the NZPFU will hold membership meetings in Auckland to discuss the outcome of that meeting.

In unity,
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
