Pam Boyd

Many of you will know that Pam has been ill for some time, Pam worked for over 25 years for the Union as the Office Manager and many of you will have had dealings with her.

I have to report that Pam passed away last night.

The Unions thoughts are with Pam’s family and expression of condolences can be forwarded to Pam’s family:

16 London Street
Korokoro
Wellington

In no small measure the present strength and success is due to Pam’s contribution over many years.

Overtime on Public Holidays

The fire Service has agreed, after strong representation from the Union, to reinstate long standing agreed procedures for paying for over time worked on a Public Holiday (the Public Holiday at rate plus a Day in Lieu).

Quite why someone in the Fire Service arbitrarily decided to change long standing and agreed processes, particularly with no notice, the Union will pursue further.

It will take a little time to retrospectively recalculate entitlements but this will be done.

IFE Payments

The refusal of the Fire Service to pay the appropriate IFE payments to persons awarded IFE qualification by Recognition of current competency has been referred to the Unions Lawyers, with instruction to file Breach of Agreement proceeding in the Employment Relations Authority.
