Three Further Fire Service Health & Safety Champions

Further to the advice in Newsletter No.21 of 27 August 2010.

The Union has associated three further S.S.Os with the list of Health & Safety Champions the Union has filed Personal Grievances on behalf of.

These are:

  • ‐ S.S.O. Robert Calder (Dunedin)
  • S.S.O. Scott Bell (Palmerston North)
  • S.S.O. Alan Goldsworthy (Invercargill)

The Union also advises that:

  • S.S.O. Gary Parks should read
  • S.S.O. Garry Parker (Timaru)

Alleged Officership Allowance Over-payment

As previously advised, the Employment Court has heard an argument as to whether the Employment Relations Authority has jurisdiction to hear an over‐payment issue.

The Court has given its judgment and determined that the Authority does have authority.

Consequently the matter is back before the Authority.

All members should be aware however that the Union’s difficulty now is that it is advised by the Fire Service that at least half of Officers receiving this alleged over‐payment have either paid back what the Fire Service is claiming or have commenced repayments.

Members will be updated further when new information is available.
