As members should be aware FENZ has recently released the document “Building Fire and Emergency New Zealand – proposals for our organisational structure and approach to rank”

The NZPFU National Council of Wattie Watson, Ian Wright and Joe Stanley will be in Auckland on Monday 23rd September to talk to our members and answer any questions members may have about the document.

This meeting is open to ALL union members, Part’s 2, 3 and 4 of the CEA and including those that may be on secondment into higher positions.

The union will be looking to its members to make submissions on the proposal from FENZ, and Wattie will guide members through the process and how it should be done.

Unfortunately due to the submission close off date and the need for the Council to speak to as many firefighters around the country as possible, these meetings are at extremely short notice.

The meetings will be held Monday 23rd September at:

  • Avondale Fire Station - 10:30am
  • Papatoetoe Fire Station – 2:30pm
  • Albany Fire Station - 6:30pm

Again we apologise for the extreme short notice but the Local encourages ALL available members to try to attend one of the sessions to be held.

Can Senior Station Officers please manage the movement of operational appliances to ensure as many on-duty staff as possible are given the opportunity to attend one of the sessions.
