Notice to Auckland Local Members

The Local has been made aware that there may be an effort by Fire Service Management to direct members into manning blacked Fraser-MAN appliances.

Given the legitimate Health and Safety concerns of the Local and its members in regard to the myriad of faults with these appliances, this would not be a lawful instruction.

If any member is instructed to crew one of these blacked appliances, the Local advises they politely decline and direct that Manager to contact a Local Union Official as this matter has been advanced to National Operations Manager Paul Turner and is being dealt with at that level.
