The Union has received several calls from concerned members with regard to the above.

As detailed in NTM No. 32 – 25 July 2011, the Union has addressed this matter, first in 2009 and again last year (copy attached).

As a result of the introduction of these boards onto Auckland Fire Stations in direct contravention of Clause 2.5.2.1 where:

“SMS is not:
… a competition or comparison between watches, stations, districts or regions;”

the Union directs that, no member is to enter any data, statistics, report or any other information that may be deemed to compare the activities of a watch with those of any other watch within a station, area or region.

If members have any concerns around the process of consultation relating to the siting of the boards, contact the Union as we are prepared to pursue with Brigade Management as to who proposed particular sitings at respective stations.
