Members will by now be aware that as part of your Local’s efforts to further our contract negotiations, a partial stoppage is planned from 23 July to 30
The wording of the Newsletter to Members No.18 – 8 July 2009 is:
The Union filed Notice of Strike Action today, for North Island members – that is:
A ban on the use of any computer keyboard or computer mouse by any Union member employed in the North Island other than members in the Northern and Central Communications Centres.
The strike will commence at 0800 hours on 23 July 2009 and conclude at 0800 hours on 30 July 2009.
The strike will be continuous.
The strike will occur at all Fire Stations, Regional Offices and Training Centres in the North Island (but excluding the Northern and Central Communications Centres).
National Committee members will discuss all matters relating to the strike action with Local officials before the strike commences.
Please direct any queries to members of the National Committee.
The important part, for us in the Local, is ensuring that our fire engines are fully manned during this time. Black Watch workers are also included in this stoppage.
The Local Committee has decided that the following will occur:
- Rosters Officers will return to the paper-based systems as used up until the advent of SMS Rostering.
- Stations are to have available, hard copies of overtime claim forms, Daily Summary of Pay Claims forms.
John Geboers and Brett Goodhue will liaise with Rosters Officers to assist in this set up.
- Completed Daily Overtime Claims to be forwarded to your Area Manager for processing (faxed or delivered or the Area Manager may like to pick them up
from your station).
- Accident Reporting will be done by hard copy. Print off 432 forms.
- Stations will keep an “Occurrence Book” for the duration of the stoppage.
- “Out of Office reply” to be used by all Union members during this action. Do this before 23 July. Wording to follow.
In order to assist members with questions during this time, the following committee members have been assigned to stations. Please direct any questions to them in the first instance.
