Code 2 : v34#15 FIREFIGHTERS HANDING OUT FORMS AT AIRPORTS – FURTHER UPDATE

In this edition - I made the point in previous communications on this issue that things are moving quickly on COVID19 related matters and as such I wanted to inform you as soon as possible about the latest development.

Code 2 : v34#14 FIREFIGHTERS HANDING OUT FORMS AT AIRPORTS – IMPORTANT UPDATE

In this edition - As with all matters COVID19, things are moving quickly. I am yet to receive any contact from the Commissioner or any other representative of Fire and Rescue. This is a deliberate decision by QFES senior management to exclude your union from the discussion on this matter.

Code 2 : v34#13 FIRE AND RESCUE RESPONSE DURING COVID19

In this edition - One very important and current example of very poor decision making in ‘One QFES’ that has not included your union (we were rung and told verbally it’s happening) was the idea to send operational firefighters to hand out forms at airports.

Code 2 : v34#12 Aurion payroll errors and inconsistencies

In this edition - It has been around a month since QFES transitioned its entire staff onto the Aurion payroll system.

Code 2 : v34#11 COVID-19 leave arrangements confirmed

In this edition - Following on from previous updates relating to COVID-19 leave arrangements, I can now advise that I have received correspondence from QFES confirming that they will be administratively applying the relevant provisions from Directive 01/20 – Employment Arrangements in the Event of a Health Pandemic to Fire and Rescue.
