October 20, 2004

Upon learning of the Union’s notice and instruction issued earlier today, the Department contacted the Union office at approximately 1015 hrs and undertook to immediately:
a) recall firefighters to staff the Bravo appliance at Umina; and
b) rescind the directive dated 19 October that gave rise to this latest dispute.

These undertakings satisfy the Union’s concerns and as such, the instruction issued earlier today is withdrawn.
