Aerial appliances

The NZPFU appliance representatives and subject matter experts met recently to workshop the NZPFU policy and submission in response to the FENZ aerial appliance strategy.  We also recognise some Locals and individual members also have their views and have been preparing responses.   The NZPFU does not discourage that input.  We will be distributing the NZPFU policy and submission for Locals/members in time for others to make supporting submissions if they choose to do so.  If you have questions or want to make sure we are considering all relevant points in our submission please contact a NZPFU SME:

The NZPFU SME’s are:

  • Central Branch Vice President and Hawkes Bay Local Secretary Peter Harwood
  • Northern Branch Secretary and Auckland Local Secretary Martin Campbell  
  • Southern Branch Vice President and Dunedin Local Secretary Mark Leonard
  • Wellington Local President Clarke Townsley
  • Auckland Local President Sulu Devoe
  • Auckland Local Committee member Terry Bird
  • Auckland Local Committee member Adam Wright
  • Wellington Local Committee member Shaun Crowley
  • Christchurch Local President Aaron McKay
  • Alban Osbourne (Hamilton)
  • Steve Gallagher (Christchurch)

FENZ’s proposed Behaviour and Conduct Office

The NZPFU has significant concerns about the proposal and operation of the BCO.  The attached FENZ document has an “indicative timeframe for the consultation period” of 3 December to 28 January 2020.  We will distribute the NZPFU policy and submission to Locals and members in time for others to make supporting submissions if they choose to do so.

FENZ’s proposed changes to the People Branch

Feedback on the attached FENZ document is due by 28 January 2021.  If you have views on the changes please email them to wellington@nzpfu.org.nz with your contact details for consideration as part of the NZPFU response.  Members may wish to submit their own feedback to FENZ directly but we would appreciate a copy so that we understand your views.

In unity,

Wattie Watson
National Secretary
