Members are advised that this afternoon the Auckland Regional Manager is escalating his bullying and intimidation tactics of our members, by ordering the Parnell Roster Officers to fill the vacancies that would have been created by the running of the Type 5 Train the Trainers Course scheduled for 29 January 2008.

It appears that this course may now be in jeopardy as the members coerced into attending it have now indicated that they do not wish to attend.

The bullying by FRM Butt has now extended to the blatant threatening of our members’ security because they have withdrawn from what is a voluntary course. It is obvious that it is FRM Butt’s intention to force the Bronto Type 5 into commission, come hell or high water. The Union has some major issues with this method of working and some even more concerning issues with the training course itself and with one of the “Instructors”.

The Union will not put up with these tactics and requests members not to fill any vacancies to cover other members who may be ordered by FRM Butt to attend the Type 5 Train the Trainers course that they do not wish to attend.

We fully expect that FRM Butt will continue to exert pressure on our members to attend this course, but our position has been fully explained to members in NTM ALC/08-04 and we have yet to see any reason why that position should be changed.

The Union will not be intimidated by this bullying and urges its members to stand staunch and follow the Union’s directives.
