On Thursday 25 October 2018 Auckland Local Committee members – James Hall, Martin Campbell & Boyd Raines along with National Officials, Ian Wright & Derek Best met with Senior FENZ Representatives – Brendan Nally, Chris Wells, Richard Dagger & Brett Warwick regarding the formation of a Working Group to look at Auckland Recruit and Retention issues.

An outcome of the meeting was the establishment of a Governance Group to oversee an Auckland Working Group.

This will include at least the Director – People & Capability, the Chief Financial Officer, a Senior Auckland Local official and a Senior National Committee Member.

The Governance Group will establish Terms of Reference for the Working Group that will include up to five Auckland Union Representatives and Senior National Committee Member to work with a number of Senior FENZ Managers with a Project Manager and the necessary Admin staff.

The Auckland Local Committee Met yesterday to recommend the makeup of the Auckland Representatives.

The working group will be expected to discuss all issues, invite expert opinion, garner ideas from multiple sources, including overseas. FENZ has promised to give support to this project as it was recognised that this is a major issue facing not just us but other industries throughout New Zealand, and that all eyes will be on us.

This group will hope to identify problems, offer ideas, find solutions and offer recommendations. The work will be constructive and positive, but it will be intense.

Members selected must be under no illusion that the task ahead will be immense and incredibly important.

If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact one of your Local representatives for more information.
