Fellow Practitioner Issue 184 Dated 6 December 2013

The Regulation Review Committee puts its head on the chopping block again.

Do submissions and participation in consultation get listened to? What does it mean if people don't have their say? Is silence a yes?

We pay for discipline and prosecutions. Do politicians do the same?

Hi guys, in this week’s ‘Fellow Practitioner, a week in the Federation` highlights
sterling work by Wal and the team on behalf of trades people in our trades. It just goes to show that without the federation none of these departments/organisations would know/care of the problems that exist in our trades, then we would be at the mercy of the overbearing board, cheers
A week in the Federation
This has been a very busy week for the Federation where committee members have:
(1) Been interviewed by investigators from the Ombudsman’s office,
(2) Have placed a considerable submission with the Office of the Auditor General,
(3) Have spoken to and provided advice to Bill English’s office as a result of a Federation member laying a complaint with his office
(4)and a small delegation went to parliament and met with a member of the opposition to discuss Tertiary training and other industry issues.
Thanks to all those involved for your time and efforts.

Yes, a week of excitement alright!!  I loved the article on Will MP's pay - highly unlikely I suspect, but it does put things into perspective though - why shouldn't THEY pay if we have to pay?  One rule for us and another for them. 

As the Federation assert - if we can get the training of our apprentices right, the rest will flow through ok - the need for constant CPD points may also drop away. 

Well done!
