During a planned NZPFU NCOM and Locals meeting this afternoon we received a revised offer from FENZ for Firefighter and Officer pay scale.  As the NCOM bargaining team had not seen the offer earlier it was not discussed at the union meeting. NCOM will meet tomorrow to discuss the revised offer and any further response.

At today’s meeting the Union discussed the organisation of membership meetings.  A first round of meetings will be held virtually to provide detail and analysis of the FENZ responses to NZPFU claims.  Those meetings will be organised with input from Locals to maximise the opportunity for members to attend.  Members will be notified of the virtual meetings once programmed.

Membership meetings will be conducted in person where any ballot is required.  We are cognisant the relevant Covid-19 traffic light settings will restrict numbers attending so additional meetings will be organised as necessary to accommodate members. Members will be notified of any meeting requiring attendance in order to participate in a ballot.

In unity,
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
