Levin Fire Station - Two-person crew

Please see the recent Facebook post from the Union about FENZ’s proposal to staff Levin with only 2 career staff. 

The NZPFU National position is for NO career firefighters to apply for these positions if FENZ advertise them on the portal. 

On Thursday night FENZ decided to ignore the evidence and emailed Palmerston North firefighters asking for expressions of interest from an Officer and a Qualified Firefighter/Driver.

“The NZPFU strongly advises our members not to respond to that request as this two-person career crew proposal is not in your interests, breaches your safe systems of work and does not meet the needs of the Levin community.”

Any queries please contact one of the Branch Executive.
