Dear Brother / Sister
RDS â€“ PART-TIME WORKERS SETTLEMENT â€“ UPDATE 20 JANUARY 2012
Further to my previous circular 2012HOC0015AD dated 11 January 2012, this circular provides a clarification on the current state of play.
There are several thousand FBU members who will be receiving a claim.Â We still appear to be on course to send these letters containing details of the individual offer of settlement on 26 January 2012.
There is however a group of 1900 members who we have written to separately at their last known address.
You may be one of those 1900 members, or you may have spoken to one of them.
You/they have received a letter, with a form, which needs to be completed as soon as possible.Â If you havenâ€™t received a letter, that is because you are one of the majority of members who have been recognised by fire authorities within their data files.Â It does not mean that you have been forgotten.Â A number of members have contacted Popularis and/or the FBU.Â As you will see from the above, this is not necessary.Â This is a glitch which can be remedied once we receive the completed form from those members.Â Further circulars will be issued by Head Office in due course, when the dispatch of offer letters for the majority is imminent.
Members should keep an eye out for letters which have (or will be) sent to your last known home address; the FBU notice board in your workplace and of course, the FBU website. (www.fbu.org.uk)
