Ban – C.F.B.T. – Heat Source

After receiving a report from the Dunedin Local and subsequent discussions, Conference 2010 resolved:

“That a ban be placed on the use of Manufactured Board (e.g. MDF/Particle Board) being burnt (i.e. used as the heat source) in C.F.B.T., and that further studies be carried out on the effects on those who have been exposed to the fumes caused by burning such materials.”

Once the EPM Union has provided details of the Bank Account, members will be advised so that individual’s may donate.
