The Union has decided to produce a Diary for 2004 itself. Consequently, the Diary will be smaller because it will not include advertising.
Because of this change, there have been some delays in production, but it is expected that the Diaries will be delivered to Local Secretaries in the week commencing 2 February 2004.
Deputy Chief Fire Officer/Volunteer Support Officer
The Union has noted the Chief Executive/National Commander’s decision to put on hold the proposal to create joint DCFO/VSO positions until new Fire Service legislation is enacted.
The Union had advised the Chief Executive/National Commander of its strong opposition to the proposal.
However, the Union believes the present Act requires the appointment of a Deputy C.F.O. and this should therefore happen.
The Union had advised the Chief Executive/National Commander of this and also that any appointee should be properly qualified i.e. a minimum of 2 years operational experience as an S.S.O.
