Further to NTM 12 ‐30, 12 June 2012.

The Union is advised that Management has accepted that the 8 June accident, as noted in the Newsletter, requires a formal Level 2 Accident Investigation; that such an investigation has been commenced, and the Union is represented on the Investigation Team (Peter Nicolle, National Committee member).

Until, at least, this Accident Investigation is completed, the ban on any handling of the HazMat pods advised in the newsletter will continue.

If any member is directed or ordered by Management to move or handle the pods, the advice of the Solicitor is to respectfully decline, and state, "This is a matter between the Union and the Fire Service. If further clarification is needed, then contact an Executive Official of the Auckland Local".

The Union is progressing with its Solicitor on the more broad issue concerning the Union’s contention that there are significant issues with the Decontamination Corridor system.

Members will be informed when more information is available.
