Members are advised that it is not in your interest to participate in FENZ’s Understanding the Support Provided to our Volunteers survey.

The NZPFU is representing VSO members regarding their workloads.  We had to file a dispute in order to be invoked in the review of support provided to volunteers.  As part of that involvement the Union was provided with a copy of the survey and requested changes which FENZ have not undertaken or responded to the issues we have raised.

As a result we advise members that it is not in the interest of our members to participate in the survey as necessary changes have not been made. Reasonable workloads are a health and safety matter. 

We will continue to represent VSOs on the issue. 

In unity,
Wattie Watson
National Secretary
