Dash for Cash

Dash for Cash

We are receiving some feedback from around the place about the Dash for Ca$h and it appears that some members are unsure of what the CANZ position is on this. We need to be clear that the CANZ position has not changed and is the same from day 1. Here is a paragraph from the last update. Through this process the CANZ position has not changed. This process must be bargained into the Collective Agreement as it is a change in terms and conditions. It will also provide job security and a shared responsibility in the application and development of the PRA as no changes can be made without the agreement of both parties. We are not against the idea of a healthy and fit for purpose work force, just against the application of it and that it is not in the CEA.
Prison Closures

Prison Closures

Over the last week or so we have been approached by numerous members concerned about the fact that Corrections are still advertising for jobs and continuing promotions rounds when these could be roles for staff that are effected with the unit closures. Although technically there is nothing CANZ can do about this at this stage as this is still just a proposal and until a decision is made we are not able to legally get a freeze on these positions we have been asking and questioning Corrections around this.
Members Discounts

Members Discounts

CANZ have been working to secure a number of discounts for you the members to enjoy. We have had discounts with groups like VTNZ, Jetts Fitness and Snap fitness but it is hard for us to get this information to you the members. The other thing that holds us back is the fact that we do not have a membership card for these suppliers to use as a reference point for the discount. We will have a membership card to give you all and this will have 8 suppliers that are offering us discounts, these will be Carters, Hertz, Noel Lemming, VTNZ, Repco, Placemakers, Beaurepairs and Millennium & Copthorne Hotels. We are also working on getting an app that our members can download which will give you access to over 20 more suppliers and the list is growing.
