On Saturday 22 January, Brigade Management were prepared to compromise your personal safety when they prevented Roster Officers from enacting the process laid down in the Hours of Work Policy in order to assess if the only remaining staff who were able to work but would have exceeded their hours in doing so, could work and thereby maintain MSM.

This is unacceptable to the Auckland Local and its members. While Roster Officers and their assistants have been putting in long hours with many, many phone calls to staff to cover absences, and have been working to adhere with the policy, Management, it seems, is less willing to give those staff full control over achieving the goal of maintaining full MSM.

All operational Roster staff are directed by the Auckland Local to complete coverage of lost shifts up to and including Tuesday 25 January 2005 day shift 0800 – 1800. At 0800 on Tuesday 25 January 2005 they are to deliver electronically or in person all records, templates and materials used to carry out the functions of the Roster Departments, to their respective Chief Fire Officers.

No staff currently trained or untrained in this function will accept delegation as Roster Officer on receipt of this notice.

Roster Departments affected:

Parnell
Papatoetoe
St Heliers
City
Albany
Henderson
