Members are advised again, that it is the policy of the Wellington local for members not to accept requests for Section 66.

The Local notes that Wellington District management has advertised for Section 66 appointments in Wellington Fire District and nothing has changed in the locals’ position that members are strongly recommended not to apply for these positions.

Some reasons why Sect. 66 are not required in Wellington:

Members will remember times in the past when some were asked to Act under Sect.66 and then consequently missing out on the job when it was finally advertised.

The Sect. 66 process does not give everyone an equal opportunity to gain experience.

There is no shortage of Officers to fill the vacancies on overtime.

Vacancy should stay in the occupational group where it has been created.

Sect. 66 appointees have not passed any promotional interviews.

The Local supports the filling of vacancies by advertisement. Those members who are fully qualified, by time served and qualifications at time of advertisement, are strongly encouraged to apply for the vacancies that will be advertised in the next gazette.
