The Auckland Local has been dealing with a number of matters that can be seen as intimidating members by Area Management throughout Auckland in relation to matters associated with employment conditions, entitlements, sick leave, work accident and non-work accident management.

The Auckland Executive is not prepared to condone in any way FENZ Managers inappropriately pressuring or intimidating members to agree to their demands without the member having the opportunity to have full and proper advice from a Union Official.

The Auckland Local strongly advises any member who feels that they are being unreasonably pressured to meet with or are ambushed by Brigade Management without representatives present should immediately contact the Union Office in Auckland or urgently speak with an Auckland Local Official.

Recent examples of some Area Management acting in a bullying or unreasonable manner are currently being pursued both by individuals as complaints against the employer’s unreasonable actions, and, when appropriate, the Auckland Local Officials will, on a more formal basis, pursue our concerns with FENZ at a very senior level.

The Auckland Local is not prepared to have members put in such a position where they feel their rights as a worker are no longer being respected.
