Fire Risk Management Positions

Vacancy Area 4 Notice R1/061/2017

The Local writes to members in response to an article appearing in today’s New Zealand Herald pertaining to bullying allegations against one of our members.

The Local states that the article is significantly inaccurate and non-factual.

The matter described in the Herald is subject to an on-going employment dispute and the Union believes that the employer has acted completely inappropriately.

As a result of this article and the on-going employment dispute, the Local, effective immediately, “blacks” the advertised Fire Safety positions in Auckland City Area 4 in the interim until this employment dispute has a resolution.

The Local is of the view that in the efforts to best protect members’ on-going welfare and safety, this “blacking” recommendation should be fully complied with.

The Local strongly recommends that no-one applies for these positions, whether on a permanent basis or a secondment, and if a member has applied, that they withdraw their application in light of this situation and do not take up any such position if it is subsequently offered to them.
