Members will be aware of the recent rumours regarding watch transfers at Taupo Station. A number of issues have been raised with Central Lakes and Region 2 management regarding these watch changes, including:

  • The lack of proper consultation with staff or the Local.
  • The frequency of directed watch changes in Taupo (this is potentially the 3rd in 4 years).
  • The rationale behind watch changes.
  • The way management have leaked and ‘drip feed” the information on watch changes to staff over an extended period of time through inappropriate channels.

As a result of raising these issues Area Manager G Fuller has acknowledged the process has been carried out inappropriately. He has given the NZPFU an undertaking that any planned watch changes are on hold and proper consultation with staff will begin immediately.
