v34#19 AURION ERROR REPORTING EMAIL CHANGE
In this edition - Many of you reading this Code 2 would be among those caught up in the thousands of error corrections required every fortnight. After 6 months, the reports I am receiving are that things are getting worse not better. I have asked for some information on how many mistakes are being made, and what’s actually being done to prevent them.
v34#18 MORE AURION BLUNDERS - CHECK YOUR PAY!
In this edition - As you may remember, your union wrote to Fire and Rescue last month to formally notify them of the ongoing errors and inconsistencies in the new system that require urgent fixing:
v34#17 QFRS is not QFES!
In this edition - I am getting reports from UFUQ representatives across all regions of inconsistent consultation with you and your elected representatives relating to COVID19 and its effect on BAU. To be fair, I have heard of a few very good examples of consultation occurring, but also of course, we all know of some examples of total refusal to consult in areas where dinosaurs still roam.
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.
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.
