Recently FireSuper Board Chair Denis Fitzmaurice engaged in a video discussion with NZPFU National Vice President Joseph Stanley and National Secretary Wattie Watson on options for FireSuper members when leaving FENZ.

The issue is highly topical currently with major decisions and financial pressures on members who are captured by a mandatory vaccination order and having to contemplate leaving their profession as they remain unvaccinated.

Denis has provided the attached information to assist members currently planning retirement or contemplating resignation.  This information applies when FireSuper members leave Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) as a result of resignation (including retrenchment), retirement, dismissal or loss of physical or mental fitness.

In unity.
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
