The NZPFU has members in a range of roles across FENZ including some employed in non-operational fixed term positions, and there are secondments into various departments.

Firefighters are not employed on fixed term agreements but are seconded into a range of roles.

FENZ has notified the NZPFU there are fixed term roles that are due to expire that will not be renewed.  In addition there are operational personnel who have been seconded into various roles that may be affected in Integration and other areas.

If you are seconded into a role and you have been notified that secondment is expiring or terminating, you should revert back to your substantive role.  If there are any issues with returning to your substantive role, or the notification is not in accordance with your letter of secondment,  please contact your union representative.

For members employed on a fixed term basis and that fixed term is about to expire, we advise those members to approach your union representative for advice.  If your fixed term is yet to expire and you have been advised of changes in your workplace and/or you employment please contact your union representative for advice.  

All members are advised to have union representation present at any meetings where your position and employment is being discussed.

Please provide your letters of appointment, any individual contracts or letters of secondment to your union representative so that you can be appropriately advised.

In unity,
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
