Relieving bans to commence

February 13, 2008

The Union is escalating industrial action in support of the 2008 wage campaign.

All members are hereby instructed that effective on and from 0800 hours today, Thursday 14 February 2008, no member is to perform any relieving, stand-bys or out-duties. Members are to return to and remain at their base station, save for GSA-based members who are currently relieving out of the GSA, who may remain at their present location. Members are not to change platoons to fill known or unknown absences, and members who act as ‘Z men’ are to remain at their base station on the platoon they are currently working throughout.

Should a station be reduced to less than its minimum staffing level as a result of these bans, then the station is to remain offline until such time as minimum staffing levels are restored. These bans will remain in place until lifted by way of further notice from the State Secretary.

Simon Flynn

State Secretary
