Last month FENZ released its proposed Technical Competency Framework with a deadline of 5pm on 19 September 2021 for feedback.

The NZPFU has a group of SMEs who are working on the NZPFU response which will include the NZPFU ACL paper (previously provided and attached) as well as specific response to the TCF proposal.     

The NZPFU submission will also draw on relevant submissions members made to the Tranche 2 proposal in 2019.  Many of the 1000 submissions from members highlighted health and safety concerns if FENZ appointed non-qualified or inexperienced personnel to positions where they would take command and control. 

Those submissions are relevant as a response to the TCF proposal.

If members wish to make a specific response to FENZ’s TCF proposal please send your submission to wellington@nzpfu.org.nz by 5pm 16 September 2021 so that we have time to collate and include with the Union submission.

In unity.
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
