Meal reports banned

August 11, 2006

A memo was circulated to W6 Station Commanders recently by management regarding the payment of meal and refreshment allowances. Not only did it contain highly offensive language it also implied a member could be open to disciplinary action for making a perfectly legitimate claim under our Award. The Union will not tolerate such threats towards our members.


Members are instructed to not submit any reports (written or verbal) or answer any questions (written or verbal) from senior management regarding the payment of meal or refreshment allowances until further notice. Any questions from Region West management regarding this issue should be referred directly to the Sub-Branch Secretary listed at the foot of this notice

So, do not be intimidated. Claim your entitlements as per the Award and be assured that management’s budget targets will not be met at the expense of your health and safety.


Matthew Murray

South West Sub Branch Secretary
