NZPFU and PSA representatives have been meeting with Deputy Chief Executive Service Delivery Kerry Gregory and other FENZ representatives over the past two days to discuss the proposed Tranche 2B roles.
The first day was spent responding to FENZ’s “re-consultation” document including the number, location and nature of the roles, and the proposed transition to those roles.
Today we discussed issues around union coverage and job sizing as well as a process for determining terms and conditions of employment.
FENZ have undertaken to provide a range of information we have requested that is necessary for us to fully respond to the proposals, and to clearly understand FENZ’s position.
FENZ has undertaken to provide that information by the end of the week. The NZPFU and PSA will then discuss the information provided and inform the membership of any outcomes or implications.
FENZ have confirmed that there is no need for members to be notifying FENZ of any preferences or expressions of interest for the proposed CRR and RR (senior advisor and advisor) positions until the re-consultation process is complete and final decisions are provided.
We repeat our advice to members not to do anything to indicate your preference or intentions for roles under the proposals at this time.
We will keep members informed.
