Dear Wayne,

I have been asked to write to you by our National Committee.

The Committee is concerned at the number of occasions members of your Society have undertaken work currently banned as a result of the Union’s current strike action.

Two examples are:

  • The taking and operation of the Command Unit in Hawkes Bay (apparently at the request of the Police);
  • Undertaking training of Recruits in Rotorua.

Section 47 (31) of the Employment Relations Act is clear in that any person (already employed) must agree to perform the work of a striking employee. That is – the person cannot be directed to undertake the work of a striking employee.

The Union is well aware and appreciates the difficulties that our strike can cause from time to time for your members.

However, the Union would ask your Society to consider strongly recommending to your members that they do not agree to undertake the work banned as a result of our Union’s strike action.

Thank you for your consideration.

Yours sincerely,

DEREK BEST
SECRETARY
