We know that some former members are frustrated with the delays in being notified if they are owed payments, and if so when that payment will be made.  We are passing on all those queries to the appropriate personnel at FENZ and following up on progress. They should be receiving their calculations, and be receiving any payment outstanding.

There will be a number of former members that do not even know they may be eligible for a payment. 

Please pass this notice onto any friends or former workmates if they worked in NZFS or FENZ between 1 Jan 2010 and 1 July 2020.   You may have social clubs and regular functions to keep in touch.  Others may be reachable via social media.  Please ask these former Fire Service employees if they have registered with the FENZ Holiday Act Project, and if not advise them to contact the Holidays Act and Pay Remediation Project’s email address of Holidays.Act.Project@fireandemergency.nz.

Deferred Leave

The Holidays Act and Pay Remediation Project will be introducing a new method for applying for annual leave called Deferred Annual Leave in SMS.  These changes are on schedule and we anticipate this to be available in SMS in August 2020.

A training package will be made available from 20th July to explain how this new function can help with the correct allocation of annual leave.  Please see the attached joint notice explaining the basis and impact of the changes.

In unity,
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
