The Auckland Local has been undertaking activities related to the effect on members, primarily from Avondale, who may be transferred as a result of the proposed opening of Te Atatu Station.

The Union has had some more recent discussions with Management in Auckland regarding this and has recently exchanged correspondence on this matter.

The Auckland Local was disappointed to note that notices advising of the vacancies for Te Atatu have been posted both on the Waitemata Area website and in the National Gazette.

We have arranged to meet with Regional Management on Monday 7 February to further our consultation on this matter (see attached correspondence). The Union has not received an answer to our question regarding the Fire District issues raised in this letter. We would hope that Management can clarify this at our meeting.

In the interim, the Union’s advice to members is to not apply for these vacancies. Members should appreciate that this is an interim position whilst we attempt to obtain the best possible outcome for our members at Avondale who will be displaced from this station as a consequence of Te Atatu opening.

It is hoped that as a result of meeting with Management on Monday, we will be able to provide members with a clearer picture as to the likely outcome.

The Auckland Local Committee will attempt to have this position duplicated on a National basis as soon as practicable.
