Travel Money

There seems to be a divergence from past practice and agreements in Wellington Fire District regarding travel payments whilst on Overtime.

The Local has taken up members concerns with CFO Graham. The Local has informed Mr. Graham that the e mails and statements by DCFO Dunphy are quite incorrect and we have asked that all monies owed to members, be paid ASAP. Members are advised that the paying of travel money dates back quite some time when the Fire Service transported FF’s and their PPE to the station they were due to attend for OT.

A disputes hearing in 1986 stated that if a FF is contacted at home, has to travel into his usual station to uplift his PPE and uniform, then travel to the station where the OT is, the FF will be paid that cost, both in travel reimbursement and time travelled.

The Local is still awaiting a reply to its concerns and members will be informed of the outcome.

In the meantime, members are asked to contact their local District Representative with details of any non-payment of travel money.

AGM 

Members are advised that the Wellington Local AGM will be held soon date and times TBA.

Therefore, the Local calls for any remits to be discussed and put forward to the National Conference this year.

All remits must be in writing, stating a proposer, seconder, the nature of the remit and supporting documentation to the Local Secretary, no later than 7th Spetember 2006.
