Supporting Fire Crisis and NZPFU Strike Action


On Friday the 19th of August Firefighters and other members from NZPFU will take the historic action to strike for 1 hour from 11am.

This action is due to FENZ deciding there is no merit in continuing bargaining talks this week.

FOR the NZPFU and their members this is not a battle focused on wages.  This is a fight for appropriate resourcing to protect the community and safe systems of work.


CANZ is asking for any staff that are not at work on Friday to support their local firefighters, Officers, 111 emergency call centre dispatchers, Volunteer support Officers, Health, Safety and Wellbeing roles as well as all other positions covered by NZPFU.

Yours in Unity
