A.S.L’s

Members are advised of a request by the district CFO ofWellington South. He requires indication of when members intend to take their ASL’s, in particular those members who have more than 6 ASL’s accumulated.

This is apparently a budgetary issue and members are advised that they can be instructed to take their leave as per the collective. Strictly speaking, ASL’s should be treated as annual leave and have historically been allowed to be accumulated by agreement with CFO’s.

Therefore, members who have accumulated more than 6 ASL’s from Wellington South should contact their CFO and give him an indication of when you intend to take those days.

Acting Up

It appears timely to remind members of the protocol when attempting to find Officer overtime. There is a definite hierarchy of process.

OT should be issued to same rank from within district, then outside district.

Then offered to SSO’s from within district, then outside district. Then fully qualified SFF’s following the same process. Then partially qualified SFF’s, same process and so on down the line until there is no one left to ask.

When all else fails, try Masterton and Palmerston North. Note, add another level on top for SSO’s

Members should also be aware that there can be absolutely no pressure to bear from anyone for members to act up to a position or rank than they currently hold.
